(4.8/5 based on 45+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Tucuruí is a municipality in the state of Pará in the Northern region of Brazil.The city is served by Tucuruí Airport.The name Tucuruí is a Tupi word that means "river of ants" or "river of locusts". It's the concatenation of two tupi words: tukura (ants, locusts) and 'y (water). The city is very famous because of its colossal Dam, the Tucuruí Dam which is administered by Eletrobrás Eletronorte - the constructor company of this large infrastructure project.EconomyCurrently, Tucuruí city's economy is based on agriculture and general commerce. During its 60 years the commerce activity varied a lot. In the beginning there was a railroad for draining out the production of the Brazil Nut (known in Brazil as "Pará's Nut"), a very abundant available product in the region. The Tucuruí Dam developed the municipality and brought large industries for the region.TourismIn Tucuruí you can explore the dam lake, one of the largest artificial lakes ever made by man. It has 74,6 meters of depth and more than 2.500 kilometers of total extension. You can visit islands, fishing Cichla or Tambaqui and see natural beauties that you can only find in Amazon. You can also explore the historical site of city with some old buildings and the Museum of Extinct Railroad - the historical museum with a lot of pictures and objects from the city beginning. You can check the train that was used in the period of Brazil Nut that was restored and placed in front of the Eletrobás Eletronorte Cultural Center. You can come in the Cultural Center and schedule a visit inside the hydroelectric dam to know how it works.
