Marco Das Tres Fronteiras, Foz do Iguacu

#2 of 167 in Historic Sites in State of Parana
Historic Site · Landmark
The green and yellow obelisk of Marco Das Tres Fronteiras on the lookout platform signifies the place where you can see three markers designating the exact point where Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay meet. The trail to this equilateral triangle is about 2,000 m (6,650 ft) long, surrounded by pine and guava, as well as locals who may try to stop you to sell you something or beg for money. You'll find a cafeteria, craft shop, and a gazebo where you can observe the three countries, and the confluence where the Iguazú flows into the Paraná River.

  • The view was excellent but it was extremely crowded and the options for food and drink were not sufficient for the amount of people there. Great kids area though!  more »
  • I had been at the 3 frontiers area a few years ago and All I had was a monument that still there but now you have a simple show about the history of the place. A few folk dances of Brazil, Argentina.....  more »
  • Nice place to pay a visit while you are in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. As a mark of border for Brazil-Argentina-Paraguay, and a place to hangout with your loved one. I went there at night (7pm), it even better with colorful lights everywhere. There are souvenirs shop, some food stalls which you can try local food.
  • Bit of a bizarre place, but somehow we managed to spend quite a few hours there. Spent the first hour questioning why we'd spent so much money to get in, then spent the next hour in queuing to get drinks, then out of nowhere this whole dance thing happened, which if we hadn't spent so long trying to get a drink, we'd have totally missed! Dances were actually quite lovely, different pieces from the three different countries, so that was enjoyable!
