Homage to Iguazú Falls
This tribute that the city of Buenos Aires has paid to the famous falls began to be planned after they were consecrated as one of the new seven wonders on November 1, 2011. But in addition to a tribute for its status as the only natural wonder of the world in Argentina, the monument is also a site strategic for the promotion of this tourist destination, which annually visits about a million tourists.
Made with the same stone
The work has been coordinated by the architect Serio Dobrusíb and has its interior armed with blackberry stone, the same one found in the waterfall formations and which was specially brought from Missions so that the monument had the same color as the original appeal that inspired it.
