Foz do Iguaçu is a city with a lot of history. We will pass by Downtown of Foz do Iguaçu and its historical buildings such as the first airport, mother church, first college, gastronomic avenue, shopping center among others with stops in the Muslim Mosque, Buddhist Temple and Ecomuseum of Itaipu.
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.
The Ecomuseum: a great option to know the history of Itaipu. Scenarios faithful to the past, electronic totems and a giant model are part of this cultural space. The circuit is divided into modules that depict since the occupation of the plant's area on the Brazilian side to conservation projects conducted by the binational. Among the surprises visitors can enjoy thematic areas of water and energy, as well as a replica of the axis of a turbine at work - you can hear the characteristic sounds of the heart of the plant. The place also has an impressive panel created in homage to the thousands of workers who helped build the dam. There are 4,500 photos of the workers in the 3x4 format.
