  • The damn is interesting as a work of engineering, especially knowing that it was designed and built by simple people and illiterate, but with your intelligence and experience, guaranteed the survival in times of scarce water.

  • Example of overcoming, willpower and engineering, the tunnel is very narrow and slippery having to be taken down, weekends have various groups doing the same screenplay and may take a while for everyone to get down.

  • The attraction is interesting if it is visited with someone who knows the history of the site, with the details of how it was built. Shows the ability to engineer a person with no real formal education.

  • John Neco suffered from the lack of water in your place, in the countryside of triumph (PE), at the beginning of the 20th century. To ease the problem he even dug, between 1932 and 1935, a well with about 25 metres of depth for power supplies. Later, he considered inconvenient to pulled out of the water by opening the well, especially for children, the elderly and women with whom I had the desire to share the fruits of your work. John Neco put back to work. This time to build a tunnel to cross well, toward the headwaters of the same, with the aim of facilitating the withdrawal of water. This tunnel, with about 30 m long, 2 m in height and 1, 2 m wide, built only with dirt and rocks in the region is, along with the well itself, an attraction in itself and receives the name of Cacimba set of John Neco. Considered a work bold by the standards of the time, built by a self-taught concerned with the well-being of the community where he lived, the Cacimba is today, for all this, a tourist destination worth knowing. To reach the destination, we recommend hiring a guide with suitable car in the Centre of triumph (PE). The distance is not great (about 5 km), but the road is not good and therefore should avoid making the path with an ordinary car. Going there, it's worth it enjoy the trip and meet other nearby points of interest such as the Pico do Papagaio and the Furna da Lage.

  • A work above all surprising! Fascinating, how can man, when you want to reach your goals. The Well was excavated in a Mason in the 1930. His Person, the man who presents the story of Cacimba visitors is another tourist attraction, you might say. The Well is in the countryside of triumph. Is a work and amazing story.
