  • Hello friends. I want to tell my experience when you visit the Itapu dam. A stroke of genius. A pharaonic work. Impressive. So many of the triple border actually enters a place to meet. The tour begins with an explanatory video. We then embarked on the groups that take you to the first stop where you can see the dam in its entirety. Then another bus. Travel continues circulating through the internal streets of the resort until you pass over the Weir and the impressive turbines. This allows to obtain a commanding view of the Lake. Follows the route through below monstrous facilities, being able to observe the power generating turbines. The entire circuit is very well organized and with the chance to enjoy everything that the guides explain. In several languages. Returning to the central station. After about two hours. At the station you can enjoy the typical souvenirs sale premises. Patio of meals and other related. All really very well organized and coordinated.
