Parque E贸lico Jepirachi - Other Activity Cabo de Vela - Colombia

Like giant stoic soldiers lined up across the flat barren lands, awaiting the charge of a Quijote, hundreds of windmills reel their three arms against the clear azure sky. This is one of the largest electrical projects in the world, generating a good portion of Colombia鈥檚 energy needs. Here, there is a visitor center, various paths, a botanical garden, the Parque de Leyendas (explaining Wayuu mythology) and an artisan association called Saanain Woumain.

Along the main north-south road, midway between the Manaure-Uribia crossroads and Puerto Bol铆var, not too far from the turn-off for Cabo de la Vela.
