The basics

Originally erected in 1903, these three obelisks painted patriotically with the colors of their respective flags mark the Tripitarte, or triple-border region. Each offers a pleasant view of the rivers, and each is surrounded by vendors selling snacks and souvenirs. Guided small-group and private tours take visitors to the Brazilian monument and typically include roundtrip transportation, entrance fees, and a local guide. Some tours also include a sunset dinner near the monument. The park includes a few exhibits on Brazil’s historic Jesuit villages.
