Sited on the border between Brazil and Paraguay, this architectural masterpiece opened in 1984 as a result of the joint enterprise undertaken by these two countries.

  • I am an engineer so it was part of my to-do list before I die, visit this place. Is unbelievable the size of this place and how brave and clever man can be.  more »
  • This is the second biggest in the world but come on, they're the first in power generation. It's absolutely huge you can't imagine. If you can visit at night because of the lights. Awesome!  more »
  • At the Itaipu website you can choose some different visit as you prefer. The "complete" one is really great as you can be inside of this monster.  more »
