Fishing, a hydroelectric power plant and an artificial beach

Located in the Western region of São Paulo state, it is one of the best spots to fish tucunaré in São Paulo, in the clear waters of the Tietê River. 

In this town travelers can get to know some human made wonders, such as Pôr-do-Sol artificial beach, by the dam of Três Irmãos hydroelectric power plant, and the world’s second largest canal, which is 9.6 km long. 

In the 1920’s, the town received a wave of Japanese immigrants who came to work in the farms of the region. Over time, crop and livestock farming started to make way for the town’s booming tourism industry.
