Puerto Ordaz today one of the cities with highest rate of industrial and economic growth is also one of the best planned and most modern ones in the country. Founded in 1952, as the headquarters of the Orinoco Mining Company, this city lodges the iron and aluminum industry which in Venezuela, is second only to the oil industry. From here these nowadays so vital natural resources are supplied to the worldwide market. The union of San Felix and the industrial sector of this city gave birth to Ciudad Guayana in 1961. Ciudad Guayana is the home of The Guri dam, the second biggest hydroelectric power station in the world, which supplies the energy to the electric industry both local and national. In this city the two most important rivers of the country join, creating the Caronoco Zone, named after the two rivers' names Caroni and Orinoco. From one of the bridges that links Puerto Ordaz and San Felix this confluence is perfectly visible. Among the loveliest attractions of the city are Cachamay and La Llovizna Parks, where you can admire superb cascades and relish the luscious flora on the parks beautiful paths. "A close natural encounter of the best kind".
