Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

#4 of 19 in Things to do in Concordia
Marvel at the modern technology and engineering of Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, a large dam that provides over 70 percent of Uruguay's energy and 10 percent of Argentina's. Built under the auspices of a historically important cooperation by the two nations, the dam straddles the Uruguay River between Salto and Concordia, and represents the first undertaking of its kind in Latin America. A guided tour from a knowledgeable docent gives insight into the structural ingenuities of engineering employed here, and as well as the dam's crucial role for both nations' infrastructures.

    The visit to the Salto Grande hydroelectric plant is a good opportunity to visit a facility of this kind between the two countries, Uruguay and Argentina. Uruguay side guided tours are very good and have well-armed tours.

    It is one of the hydroelectric complexes, more large in our country, in addition to unite two neighboring Nations, Argentina and the Uruguay. It is interesting to see it working, and how it caters to large part of our country and of the Uruguay's energy. electric

Where to stay in Concordia

Most of Concordia's accommodations are in its southern neighborhood, where upscale hotels provide good rooms close to the river. The abundance of space just north of the main city has led to a number of resort-style hotels opening and expanding into the landscape, offering a range of facilities like private pools, onsite restaurants, and bars. Budget-conscious travelers are well catered for here, with plenty of hostels and rental apartments located in the main residential areas of the city.
