If in Misiones we ask about the city of the long street they will direct us to a single destination .

This is the third most important population settlement in the province , which can be dimensioned once you have a foot inside. So if you want to meet him, all you have to do is take a trip on the RN 12. In addition, it is located 206 kilometers from Posadas and 100 kilometers from Iguazu Falls .
An ode to the red earth
The village was founded on September 29, 1919 by Adolf Julius Schwelm , a German from Frankfurt. The day was established in tribute to his birthday, which also coincided with the arrival of this to the old port of what is today Eldorado. As for the name, it is inspired by what the man envisioned from his ship to the distance. There, he managed to perceive a natural beauty and shimmers of sunshine that crossed the virgin forest . Aspects that went back to a legend of earthly paradise, made up of a territory full of riches and treasures.
These visions served as the basis for Schwelm's philosophy, who firmly held that abundance lay on the red earth . So, if you worked in a constant and dedicated way , the locals would see the city they dreamed of born as a fruit. Thus, the immigrant sought ways in which productive activities, such as agriculture and the timber industry, could begin to develop in the city. Finally, the movement drew attention and encouraged the establishment of other Europeans with yearnings for progress. Among them were Germans, Dutch, Swiss, Italians, Danes and Poles.
A walk through the memory of the founder
Within the attractions of Eldorado we have Shwelm Park . It is a free campsite, located nine kilometres from the city center . It is also located in an area surrounding what was once the home of its creator. Inside, we can embark on trails that are bordered by exotic flora. At the same time, it has panoramic views of Paraná, a portion of the rainforest and the coast of Paraguay. Thus, a gratifying proposal to relax in the company of nature is assembled.
On the other hand, the Municipal Museum Casa del Fundador is available on the premises. Your visit is recommended to admire the exhibitions of archaeological pieces and lithic collections of the Paleolithic Parana, Neolithic and Tupy Guarani periods . An option to enjoy throughout the year and that contributes to knowing the history of the colony .
