The funicular aside the water pipes that feed the Itatinga Hydroelectric Power Plant. The water that feeds this plant comes from the highs of Serra do Mar, from a dam about 750 m above. There is three pipe inclined sections, each one with its own hoist to conduct the funicular car. The power plant is about 25 m above sea level. Formerly there was a very little village of plant workers near the dam, but now it is abandoned. Photo shot in September 15, 2001, by Antonio A. Gorni, from São Vicente SP.
