HISTORY

The human presence in the region of the Iguazu Falls dates back to 10,000 years ago.
They are the remains of pottery from prehistoric times on the banks of the Iguazu River.

1542

Álvar Núñez “Cabeza de Vaca” was the first European to reach the fall, and named them as "Saint Mary Falls”.

1608

The Jesuits settled, and formed 30 indigenous reductions in current Argentinian Misiones and Corrientes Provinces, Southern Brazil and Paraguay. They concentrated more than 100,000 inhabitants who grew snuff and yerba mate, and organized their production and sales.

1767

The Spanish crown decided the expulsion of the Jesuits of American lands. Gradually the villages were abandoned, and the jungle covered them.

1870

End of 19th Century: First tourist expedition.

1902

The Federal Argentinian Government commissioned architect Carlos Thays a detailed survey of the Iguazu River, which was the basis for the law to create the Iguazú National Park.

1934

October 9th: the Iguazu Falls National Park was created by Law No. 12.103. It has 67,720 hectares with the aim of preserving the majestic Iguazu Falls, one of the most important natural phenomena in the world, and the biodiversity that surrounds it.

1984

Iguazu Falls National Park was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for the preservation and universal dissemination of its natural and cultural exceptional importance to the common heritage of humanity.

2011

Natural Wonder of the World: On November 11th Iguazu Falls were selected as one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World, in a universal ballot organized by the Swiss Foundation New Seven Wonders, altogether with six other destinations in the world: the Amazon Rainforest in South America, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, Jeju Island in South Korea, Underground River of Puerto Princesa in the Philippines, Komodo National Park in Indonesia, and the Table Mountain in Cape Town, Republic of South Africa.

2013

 Outstanding Universal Value: Again UNESCO honors the Iguazu Falls National Park as Outstanding Universal Value, because of being an area of so extraordinary cultural and natural importance that transcends national boundaries and becomes essential for current and future human generations.
