On the banks of Lake Guaíba, the Usina do Gasômetro is Porto Alegre's answer to London's Tate Modern. Built 1926-1928 as a thermoelectric station, it was abandoned in 1974 before being converted to showcase art, dance and film in 1992. Its 117-m chimney has become a symbol for the city. There is a café in the bottom of the chimney, and the sunset from the centre's balcony is stunning.

Dall' Usina do Gasometro, oggi centro culturale ed espositivo, fino all'Anfiteatro la vista del sole che s'abbassa all'orizzonte è di quelle che restano impresse negli occhi per sempre. Il tramonto offre un vero spettacolo anche dal lungo fiume di Ipanema, il quartiere a sud di Porto Alegre dove eleganti ville si affiancano a ristorantini e locali frequentatissimi nelle sere d'estate.

This place was where I spent many of my weekends riding my bike or just hiking around, watching the beautiful views all around. The Gasômetro area, includes a nice shore to the Guaíba Lake and a good place to run, bike or just walk around. Definitely one of the must see places in Porto Alegre.
