There are many who come during the year to spend the day at this reservoir that is 65 kilometers from the capital. In addition to enjoying its wonderful views you can also practice sports such as rowing, canoeing or fishing. And if, on the other hand, you like to step on the terrain, you can also take a horse or choose one of the routes proposed by the municipality to do a little hiking.
