The Brazilian landmark, located in the Porto Meira neighborhood, in Foz do Iguaçu, was inaugurated by Marshal Cândido Rondon in 1903. The Argentine landmark, which is located on the banks of the Iguaçu River, was inaugurated on the same date. While the Paraguayan landmark, located on the right bank of the Paraná River, was erected years later, 26 January 1961.
The three are painted with the colors of their respective national flags, form a triangle that indicates the territorial limit and the sovereignty of the three countries.
The landmarks of the three frontiers have already received thousands of visitors of all nationalities, famous or anonymous, and also have important passages in the political history of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.
The Brazilian obelisk completes 113 years this Wednesday, 20 of July. The landmark was inaugurated on the 20 day of July of 1903, approximately 11 years before the political emancipation of the city of Foz do Iguaçu in 1914. For years the obelisk has been the setting for photographic registration of tourists, locals, families, graduates, couples of lovers, among many other visitors.
Thinking about this involvement between the obelisk and the visitors and residents of the region, the Marco das Américas Tourist Complex has launched a challenge and invites visitors and residents to send photographs to compose the collection of the virtual gallery that will be permanently available on the site. Action will take place in commemoration of 113's anniversary years of appeal and the different ways people relate to the Three Borders Framework throughout the century.
Participation is open to all stakeholders and has no cost. The sending of the photos can be done to the email [Email protected] When sending the file you must enter the name of the people who appear in the image, date or approximate period of registration and credit of the photograph.
