The experience of this tour will start in the west of the state and continue to the south-central and departing from the airport to the east, will cross the state of Paraná bordering one of the main rivers, the Iguazu.
The bank of this river, in the past, was dominated by indigenous Kaingang and Guarani, being the name Iguaçu Guarani origin, which means “large water” or “a lot of water”. The river forms on the western edge of the Serra do Mar, following its 1320 km course crossing the three Paraná plateaus until it flows into the Paraná River, where are the well-known Iguazu Falls, the first point to be visited.
After feeling the power of the waters, followed, by land, following the example of the ancient indigenous paths, we will meet the Guarani communities to know their current lifestyle, the influences suffered from the year 1500, whit the arrival of the ‘conquerors’.
All along the way, the contrasts, the stories of struggle, some confrontations, fragments; landscapes that also portray the understanding of the world, our relationship with the planet. And as contradictory as it may seem to be encounters, to transform and to adapt to one another.
And it is in this way of understanding and knowing the different stories, their motivations and their way of seeing the world that the bridges are intended to be built; between different ‘worlds’; that in common has the planet called Earth, our common home.
