What to expect

Enjoy a visit to the Itaipu hydroelectric dam, responsible for the production of 95% of the electricity consumed in Paraguay, and for 24% of the whole Brazilian consumption. During the 1970s and the 1980s, while it was under construction, the Itaipu dam was regarded as a pharaonic work, fruit of the megalomaniac commanders ruling Brazil in those years.

With this panoramic tour, you will watch a documentary film on the power plant. See the dam and spillway from the central observation deck (without entering the facility). The Itaipu dam is 7,919 meters long and 196 meters high. But when viewed from close up and from various angles, it impresses even more and guarantees a unique experience. In addition to the privileged view of the spillway at the top of the dam, the path still allows contact with nature and beautiful landscapes within the Itaipu Tourist Complex.
