Boat rides, a river lock and a clean Tietê River 

Bathed by a technically clean Tietê River, Barra Bonita’s main attraction is its lock, the first built in South America, created to overcome the 26 meters of the hydroelectric power plant named after the town. Tourists can take rides in boats for 100, 300, 400 and 700 passengers. 

The Praça do Teleférico (Cable Car Square) is another interesting venue, with attractions such as paddle boats in the artificial lake, kart track and the Trade Show Center.

Downtown, visitors can enjoy the Trenzinho Simpatia train ride, the Jardineira and the Barra Bonita tram, which takes a tour around the town’s main touristic sites, such as the Artesanato square, Tietê River Memorial and the historic Campos Salles bridge.
