    Is a beautiful square with the boxes of water that gave rise to the name the same, but the only attraction is this.

    Nothing but the water tanks. Nothing else. History? OK, but there's nothing but to offer the tourist.

    The place is beautiful. Represents the splendor of the Madeira-Mamoré railroad and three water tanks where the newly founded city received all your water supply. It was founded and built a century back when the British came to build the railway in Porto Velho. Who watched the miniseries Globe MAD MARY will understand the wonderful history and beautiful location. It was in this square water tanks that I met my wife and we've been married 26 years will be.

    The three boxes of water came from the United States here, disassembled in kits, in the early 20th century to serve the construction of the Madeira Mamoré railroad and the population of the time. The first was installed in the year 1910 and in 1912 the other two. Work until the 1950. Each tank has a capacity to store 200,000 liters of water. The tanks are of cylindrical shape, covered with metal plates of conical shape and concave-shaped base. Are high from the ground by four iron columns. Surrounded by a walkway with metal sill, where it arrives via a ladder.

    Important historical site of RO, at least the square is well looked after and space and well used for fairs and events. Just ressalvo the lack of exchange of some burnt lamps.

    Important to the history of the city. However, Miss more attractive to encourage visits from tourists and locals to learn more about the origins of Porto Velho

Where to stay in Porto Velho

As a destination with few tourists, Porto Velho does not feature an overabundance of accommodation options, though you'll find enough of a range to fit most budgets. Avenida 7 de Septiembre has quite a few economy hotels and hostels, where rock-bottom prices sometimes come with dubious quality and cleanliness. Most of the city's more upscale establishments, which range from family-run guesthouses to midsize hotel blocks, lie near one of the town's main thoroughfares, Avenida Governador Jorge Teixeira. Few options exist farther outside town, and you'll likely want access to a car in order to get around efficiently as public transport in the area can be unreliable.
