El Dique San Roque Y El Embudo, Villa Carlos Paz

3.6
#1 of 7 in Parks in Villa Carlos Paz
Designed to supply fresh water to the capital, El Dique San Roque Y El Embudo harnesses the waters of several rivers. When the original dam on this site, finished in 1886, proved a failure, engineers built a new one in 1944. Most of the original still remains, since efforts to blow it up were unsuccessful. The dam makes for an interesting view whether the water level in the reservoir is low or high. When the water rises, you can see it fall into the funnel and create a whirlpool effect. Low waters, on the other hand, give you a view of the top part of the original dam. Catamarans run on the reservoir and can take you to see the dam, though for safety reasons you cannot go too close.

    A work of remarkable engineering, despite the passage of time. The Riviera access road is in full play, will be two lanes by hand, with several roundabouts and well illuminated, so it will be easier to get. For those going for the first time, don't trust the way, permanent care and brake hand, there are some bends. The very beautiful landscape. It is a must-see if you pass by Carlos Paz.

    Beautiful, but have no where to Park to take pictures. When I arrived I had to dwell in a place not enabled and dangerous with traffic. Transit.

Where to stay in Villa Carlos Paz

Despite its small size, Villa Carlos Paz features a solid array of accommodations thanks to the steady stream of city-slickers looking for a weekend of relaxation. Plenty of larger hotels featuring onsite restaurants, pools, and more upscale furnishings cluster around the highway intersection at the southern tip of the lake. While these obviously get you closer to the downtown nightlife, they generally come with a higher price tag. If you're looking for something a bit more budget-friendly, try renting a room at one of the city's many "cabanas"--smaller, lodge-like hotels farther out from the city center.
