The Official Inauguration of Iguazu Falls as one of the New7Wonders of Nature kicked off in Brazil yesterday and will continue today in Argentina. The two Latin American countries shared the candidacy of the site in the global voting campaign that ended on 11 November last year and now they are sharing the joy of celebrating its listing in the “canon of seven”. Accompanied by music and fireworks, the unveiling of a specially-cast commemorative bronze plaque honouring the cross-border achievement took place in Foz do Iguaçu in Paraná state, Brazil.

“The election of Iguazu Falls as one of the New7Wonders of Nature is something that everyone here can take pride in. It is now part of Global Memory,” said Bernard Weber, Founder President of New7Wonders. Admiring the plaque, Paulo Mac Donald Ghisi, mayor of Foz do Iguaçu, declared: “It’s the World Cup of Nature!”
