    If you like good views, peace and hiking this is an ideal place. Very close to the Summit you can walk for hours in a peaceful and beautiful environment.

    The dam is small, it is not a clean place, on the contrary there are many residues left by the people, for parking they ask for a 'collaboration', there is no place to eat something, only one since type grill to step.

    The dam offers a beautiful view and the possibility to cross it without difficulty. If the day is bright and warm, it's a perfect walk
