You can see the impact that the arrival of electricity had in Andorra
FEDA resumes guided trips to the Camí hydroelectric of Engolasters from this Saturday and until the end of September. The visit lasts about an hour and a half and is suitable for all ages.
Along the route, people will have the opportunity to travel through history and find out how the country’s main hydraulic infrastructure was built and the impact that the arrival of electricity had on Andorran society in the 1930s.
The tour starts at the house where the Engolasters guards lived, near the funicular that connected the house to the Encamp hydroelectric plant. Afterwards, visitors will be able to access spaces that are normally closed to the public, such as the machine room of the funicular or the dam’s technical gallery. The group will tour the lake while the guides explain the function of the canals surrounding the lake and their importance in generating hydroelectric power.
The guided tours will take place every Saturday at 11 am; and during the months of July, from Tuesday to Sunday at 10.00, 12.00, 15.00 and 17.00 hours. The explanations are offered in Catalan, Spanish, French, English and capacity is limited, so it is recommended to make a reservation in advance by phone or email.
