El Dique San Roque Y El Embudo, Villa Carlos Paz

(3.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The truth that it best of this excursion is the trip in the ship dspues go to see the dam or goes by there is a tremendous plunger. Seems a huge toilet does not have anything attractive, or that, or the area... especially by the people impolite and ordinary that have flames tied and disguised in media of the heat so you can make photos and if them sighted you begin to attack because know that what make not should be legal, should laburar them and leave to them animals in peace. I hope people stop taking photos so not still generated this.

  • I went several times and I love the place. The posts of "crafts and regional" are like the majority of the place. There is parking. Some narrow the sidewalk but walking. The grime and smell to rotten water struck me forcefully in this opportunity. The water of a color green radioactive.
