  • In 1882 the provincial territory was divided into five departments, the northernmost of them named Iguazú.
  • In 1928 the nation bought Arrayagaray land destined to be a National Park and a military zone; the Iguazú National Park was created and finally the urban area of Puerto Aguirre and the Park itself were delimited.
