Travelled along to Sacedon to see the lakes which looked an amazing complex on the map. The reality is quite a shock, with large areas of Rio Seco and the small amount of water left looking like a dribb;e in the bottom of a bath....More

There are not many attractions around. You could visit once. Any tour bus takes you along the river banks.
