  • Excellent view with monuments in the middle of the water that highlights Christ tanker. And the view is incomparable Miramar swamp and background plants of Ecopetrol Barrancabermeja refinery. On the other side of the street the buildings in the commercial area of the oil port. Among them is seen Scepter Popular shopping CPC and the Hotel Park Inn Radisson. This attraction is located at an equal distance from a boardwalk with the figures of dinosaurs made of welding rods which is used in the refinery and colorful pieces of ancient machines of the oil industry give the place a special attraction that is not seen elsewhere in the country.

  • Nothing cute more who find this type of places against a petroleum refinery fully operational in a city of Colombia, about the legendary Magdalena river port. It's a Boardwalk, where you can see different types of works of art with elements of a petroleum refinery: dinosaurs, towers and elements of the oil refining combine making part of teaching material that can be seen on the Boardwalk - Mirador. Walk along a paved path or by the vegetation in the edge of a swamp where there are several dinosaurs that legendary figure in marvel to adults, but especially to children who are without a doubt in the mu lost do Jurassic park. In the background... a surprising view of a refinery in full daily operation with a wonderful show of lights reflected in the water quiet Miramar swamp. Its main attraction... The famous Christ tanker and the world in the hand of God that emerge as gods of the waters. Without a doubt, this place is very visited by all travelers using the new path of the Sun from the center of the country towards the Atlantic from Colombia, since Barrancabermeja gives all visitors the comforts of a modern city. When you get to the exchanger which intercepts the Ruta del sol highway that connects the city of Bucaramanga with Barrancabermeja, close services Dagota station, take advantage of program with his family a day of rest in Barrancabermeja just 20 minutes and discover this new jewel in Colombia tourist samples visit to the most important port on the largest river that has Colombia.

  • Nice view of a city landmark
  • 👍
  • ..✌
  • Lack of security in the sector, attends the inhabitants of street, and note the pollution of the swamp and unpleasant odours.

  • La Cienega Miramar, presents a high degree of contamination, first lack of oxygen, vital element for the normal cycle of life. Another aspect is polluting waste thrown by the population and the lack of programmes on the part of Government and Ecopetrol, to rescue these mirrors of water.
