The "gasometro" looks like an unesthetical empty warehouse. One can go to the top of it, but the windows distract from enjoying the view. It's not really worth it to visit this building.

Lots of work now on the outside grounds, so no sunset watching allowed. I hope it gets back to normal sooner than later.

Usina do Gasometro has an amazing view to Guaíba River. Prefer to go at the end of the afternoon. robertasalomone.com/trips

Sometimes they have exhibitions, but the main thing is the sunset on the Guaiba. It`s amazing and worth the trip!!

A simple place to walk around and talk to the people. You can go to the roof and see a beautiful sunset over the river.
