It has a little bit of the history about the city and its beginning, you can also appreciate some local art and take some nice pics simulating you are inside the hydroelectric dam. Worth the visit!

Know that Lake buried one of the wonders of the world? The "7 Quedas" lie beneath the waters. Waters that drowned thousands of monkeys, jaguars, trees ... The environmental damage it may be necessary for industrial development but it is a real shame.
