Three Borders Mark
Vacation Travel Guide

Visit the point where the Iguazu and Paraná rivers converge to create a tri-nation frontier between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

At the Three Borders Mark in Foz do Iguaçu you can stand at the unique meeting point between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. As the Iguazu River flows down from Iguaçu Falls it converges with the Paraná River to form one of only a few places in the world where two rivers create a border between three nations.

Upon arrival at the riverbank you’ll see an obelisk-style monument painted in the yellow and green of the Brazilian flag. It was built in 1903 as a joint venture between the three neighboring countries to commemorate the border. In front of the monument is an observation deck, from where you can enjoy views of both rivers and watch boats cruising along the serene water.

The observation deck is a great vantage point for photography, especially with the ability to see the monuments on the Argentina and Paraguay sides of the rivers. Also erected in 1903, they are painted in the colors of the nations’ respective flags.

While here, look for the Memorial Cabeza de Vaca, which is a tribute to the Spanish explorer Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca. In 1542 he became the first European to explore the magnificent Iguaçu Falls.

You probably won’t spend too long at the monument, but if you get hungry there is a small café selling snacks and drinks. Alternatively, bring a picnic to enjoy on the landscaped gardens while taking in the views. Visit the small shop that sells local handicrafts.

Located at the southwestern corner of Foz do Iguaçu, the Three Borders Mark is about a 10-minute drive from the city center. Use the small, free parking area. You can catch a public bus to reach the spot, but it is more convenient to take a taxi. Many hotels and travel agencies arrange organized tours to the monument. The area surrounding the monument may feel unsafe after dark. Visit during daylight for the best views.
