Waterfalls, a suspension bridge and an ancient hydropower plant

Founded right next to Tietê River’s greatest waterfall, Salto owes almost all its touristic potential to this important river. It is on its banks that tourists can find the Tietê River Memorial, inside the vast Cachoeira Tourism Complex. 

The Lavras Complex is home the world’s largest monument to Our Lady, the town’s patroness, Our Lady of Monte Serrat, 30 meters tall. And it is also home to the second hydroelectric power plant of the Tietê River, from 1904. 

Along the river stream travelers find the Moutonnée Rock, pink granite that bears marks from the Glacial era and is about 500 million years old, in addition to the suspension bridge, known and the Love Bridge, built in 1910.
