Three Borders Landmark (Argentina)

Though the falls are often described as being at the frontier of three great nations, the actual Tripitarte between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay is several kilometers away, at the deepest part of the confluence of the Iguazu and Parana Rivers. On the banks overlooking this unmarked spot are the Three Borders Landmarks.

Originally erected in 1903, the memorials are built around three simple cement obelisks, painted in the patriotic colors of the three respective flags. The view is nice, and all three monuments are surrounded with vendors selling snacks and souvenirs. The Argentine landmark has the distinction of being the easiest to visit, a pleasant walk from the city center along the riverfront.

The view over three nations is at its finest in the golden glow of late afternoon, making it a soothing spot to relax after a day at the falls.
