  • Sad scene of a tragedy that we cannot forget. To visit with guided tour to understand the facts. We enjoyed a guided view of about 90 minutes (€10/cad) that have flown, either for help, both because the pleasant competence on this event we would talk endlessly.

  • I was a little Leary about the visit to the dam, we passed many years ago but it was not possible to see practically nothing. Now after 15 years you can cross on his Crown (where before there was the road that passed over and that was wiped out by the force of the water). The visit is really very interesting and the guides are prepared, the excitement of the events narrated is so great, you feel great respect and emotion in the words of the guides and is also heard in places. Also from the engineering point of view and landscape construction is exciting, impressive and extraordinary. The landslide is enormous and looks very good from Casso in two minutes drive from the dam, go there to understand what we are talking about when an entire mountain breaks off and falls into a reservoir. Tips for visiting, you can park near the ticket surcharge or lodge a little higher (5 minutes walk) there are two parking lots free (on the first there is the bathroom at €0.50). The cost of the visit is €5 and it's worth it all. A thought, that accompanies you even in the following days, all at unsuspecting victims and innocent and those small flags along the route with writes the names of the dead children, all those families missing persons, workers, technicians, all of them a thought and a virtual hug that they can rest in peace. We have the duty to be vigilant and to teach our children that defy nature or degrade it brings immense risks and sometimes globally, it is good that students will see and teachers make clear to children that there are limits to the exploitation of the planet and that the consequences of a bad or unscrupulous management are unpredictable and often disastrous.
