ITAIPU Binacional
One of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World, as determined by the American Society of Civil Engineers, thus dam was the largest constructed in the world until construction of the Three Gorges Dam in China - considered the largest in terms of installed capacity. However this dam currently holds the world record for generated power, set in 2016. Running free tours multiple times a day, be sure not to muss the opportunity to not only learn about and see the dam, but also learn about all of the social and environmental projects supported by Itaipu Binacional. The tour includes a 20 minute film (English subtitles) and a bus tour of the dam, including a guide and a stop at the mirador for great views of the dam. If you visit at the right time of year (sadly not the right time during our visit in August), you will have the opportunity to see the spillways open and flowing with an incredible amount of water! #engineering #views #dam #manmade #modernwonder #photography #familyfriendly #freetour #ciudaddeleste #paraguay #southamerica #renewableenergy
