  • Landmark of the city, where you can check out a little of the old port, part of the story of how did the town.

  • There's not much to talk about, is a small square with the three water tanks but no tourist information to visitors.

  • I thought I would surprise me more. The location is pretty close to other tourist sites but only has the water, lessons that history and clipping a few benches to sit on. Sometimes some activities on the site which are pretty cool, but overall I didn't stay too long, some pictures, and then click ok.

  • 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.
