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.

  • Winding roads after a not that long drive from the village, will take you out here. It blasts out a lot of water which all ages will find impressing. There is a couple of small restaurants out...

  • bellisimo
  • Beautiful lake with some fun fishing holes. Not to be confused with the San Roque dam. Which creates the lake and was built in the late 1800s.

  • Cool
  • Uno de los lugares mas tradicionales de las Sierras de Cordoba, la obra es maravillosa máxime si se tiene en cuenta cuando se hizo. El paisaje del entorno es muy bello y cuando el nivel del lago pasa el nivel del vertedero y cae por el embudo formandose la llamada cola de novia, es fantástico! Lo único que se lo ve un poco descuidado y deberían poner un poco mas de recursos y empeño para mejorar la limpieza
