This paper comparatively analyses the experiences of urban populations of Federación (Entre Ríos Province, Argentina) and Itá (state of Santa Catarina, Brazil), which were relocated because of the constructions, respectively, of the bi-national Argentine and Uruguayan dam Salto Grande and the Brazilian dam Itá. Its main focus is the manner in which different social agents in these relocated cities represent and deal with part of their tangible and intangible patrimony related to the former settlements and urban traditions, which existed before the flood resulting from the construction of the aforementioned dams. This analysis focuses primaly on the tourist venture projects currently being planned or implemented in both cities.
