  • My wife and I were in Clear Resort and made the ride by speedboat to meet the dam ... Marcelo who piloted the speedboat knows all about the dam and led us in beautiful places, one of them the source which is a show. Who is the Ibiúna cannot fail to meet this dam, it's worth it.

  • The dam has some hits, but most are unique, or upon payment. A tip is in the neighborhood, in Bujiro Nakao Piratuba, sense Ibiúna-Mercy. The beginning of the road that connects the Prainha is asphalt, but the very end, some 2 kms are very critical, but I believe it's the coolest place, as there are spaces for cars stay and do a lot of things. There are already other access via the town of aluminum, with the tail end of a tbm 2 kms of land, only here the low dam volume qd is one of the first sites to download the level, at the other end. In this excerpt tbm has no infrastructure. Further, via Aluminum, Carafá road, there are other options to meet the dam, are prainhas well and easy to access.

  • Nice place
  • Radical!
  • History alive! The first hidroelettica of Brazil! Too bad the pattimonio historivo so despised in our country! But it is worth visiting.
