    Gateway to Itatinga

    The entire city of Itatinga is off the beaten path. In order to get there, you must cross a river on a boat, then take a short train ride. You must also sign a waiver of liability with the city of Santos, who owns the boat, the train, and the community that serves the hydroelectric dam the community is next to.

    This photo shows the only connection from Itatinga to the rest of the world: a boat carries the passengers across the river to a railway line, and all people and material going to or coming from Itatinga must use the railway line.

    The Hyroelectric Plant at Itatinga

    Favorite thing: The train trip required, using unique historic equipment, to come here is the primary reason to come.

    However, it doesn't hurt to ask about touring the hydroelectric dam that is the reason for the city. NO PHOTOS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE THE HYROELECTRIC PLANT, but it is interesting to see the equipment in operation and some of the older items that they have opened up and have on display.
