Legend of the Falls

The  dramatic Iguazu Falls are along the Iguazu River (which means Big Water in Guarani) which borders Argentina and Brazil. The legend is that a deity planned to marry a beautiful woman called Naipi. This young woman fled with her mortal  true love Taroba. In a terrible fit of rage, the deity sliced the river creating the falls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
