El Dique San Roque Y El Embudo, Villa Carlos Paz
(3.7/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • I live in the city of Córdoba, but each time step here is reassuring with a unique view, it is imposing and also architecture is worthy of being referred to by its beauty and color of water that borders it.

  • Very nice view, there are some shops to buy salami, cheese, tortillas and across crafts, how complicated is to park there, should be done at the side of the road and pass cars from refilo... then it depends on the amount of water for example some photos we saw the full funnel but went and obviously did not reach both the accumulated water. Well to get off pass to Villa Carlos Paz and taking some pictures

  • Really a landscape, and even more so in times of rain, when the dam is filled and water enters the funnel creating a beautiful image that say you "the tail of the bride", has a very interesting history. Worth it!
