RED EARTH, LUSH RAINFOREST AND THE “GREAT WATERS”
It is crossed by the large rivers and virgin rainforests, the extraordinary fauna and flora… “If Paradise existed, even God would have chosen to live here…”
The spectacular Iguazú Falls (“Great Waters”), listed as Natural World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, the Moconá Falls, the Iberá Wetlands, the Jesuit Missions’ Ruins, declared UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site. A strong Jesuit and Indigenous presence gave content to the legacy that marked the region’s character.
The Litoral means the tradition in gauchos’ garments, in their living music of “chamamé”, in worshipping friendship sharing the Argentinians National drink: the “mate”.
A region where the energy of the earth can be smelled in each step, where the fauna and flora become lusher. A land where the historical and cultural legacy of several aboriginal culturally rich ethnic groups, left their permanent trace as described by the talented writer Horacio Quiroga, in novels such as “Anaconda” and the extraordinary “Cuentos de la Selva” (Jungle Tales).
