Information about Misiones Province

Misiones is one of the 23 provinces of Argentina located in the northwestern corner of the country. Area: 29,801 km². Population: 963,869 . Capital city: Posadas.

It is surrounded by Paraguay to the northwest, Brazil to the north and east, and Corrientes Province of Argentina, to the southwest.

The Iguaçú Falls are waterfalls located on the border of Brazilian state of Paraná (in the Southern Region) and the Argentinian Province of Misiones.

The province is named after the Jesuit missions (Reducciones), which were established in the area. Of the 15 Reducciones established in Argentina, 11 were located in the present Misiones Province. Of these 11, 4 were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1984: San Ignacio Mini, Nuestra Señora de Santa Ana, Nuestra Señora de Loreto, Santa María la Mayor.

To the Guaraní Indians, it was the "great water." Though taller than Niagara Falls, the greatness of Iguazú is not in its height. There are other, taller falls. It is in its immensity. During the rainy season, the lip of its two-and-a-half-mile crescent-shaped cliff is strung with ribbons of water like the strings of some immense harp. Some 275 cascades pour off the plateau and disappear into the gorge. Some plummet straight down 269-foot drops in unbroken plumes. Others dance their way down in glittering steps. Where the falls is broken by ledges, the torrent explodes into spray cloaking the gorge in an eternal mist that spawns thousands of rainbows arcing across the face of the falls.

Iguazú is the beating heart of two national parks, one in Argentina and one belonging to Brazil. Both offer pathways that lead you to dozens of angles to view the falls. At each one there is the dance of rock, and water, and light. The air vibrates with sound. The forest drips. The rocks...drip. A fine net of mist drifts lightly against your face, your nose, your cheeks. Lick your lips. Taste the falls. Ponder the abyss.
