Foz do Iguaçu is a city with a lot of history. In this tour you will not just learn about why the city was named “Foz” but also see it.
In English it is called “Iguassu Falls” but the word “Foz” in Portuguese actually means “river mouth”. When you reach the Landmark of the Three Frontiers, you will see exactly where the Iguassu’s river mouth flows into Paraná River.
There at the landmark painted in blue, yellow and green, the colors of the Brazilian flag, you will be standing at the border with the countries of Paraguay and Argentina.
From there you’ll be able to see the landmarks of the Argentinian side and the Paraguayan side as well.
You will learn about the Paraguay War, where Paraguay faced Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. There you will understand the strategic reasons as to why Paraguay invaded Brazil and about the long-lasting impact of the outcome of the war. It gives you a different perspective into the frontier itself.
From there you’ll go to the majestic Omar Ibn Al-Khatab Mosque built in 1983. It is no wonder a Mosque was built in Iguassu Falls, since it is proportionally the biggest Islamic community in the country. But it seems that the city’s religious variety doesn’t end there, we finish at the Buddhist Temple of Foz do Iguaçu and learn about the history of Buddhism and its teachings. There you can catch views from the distant city centers of Ciudad del Este and Foz do Iguaçu.
