Photographer's Note

At side of that waterfall I showed in these last days there is a rock carved by the Spaniards directed by Alvar Nuρes Cabeza de Vaca. He and his soldiers begun an amazing journey from seashore of Brazil crossing Peabiru road, an indian road linking Brazilian seashore and Peru. In this same jouney Alvar was the first white man to see Iguassu Falls, located in the same road. The history of this man is fabulous, one of the most impressive I read or heard about in my life. Here, how it was used in that time, some of the soldiers carved a cross in the edge of the road indicating a Cristian guy had passed in that point, there are other ancient signs around and, unfortunately, some vandals wrote their stupid names around in the modern times because this is a unprotected monument. Probably this is the oldest cross made in southern Brazil, 16th century.

Ao lado da cascata que mostrei nos ϊltimos dias hα uma rocha gravada pelos espanhσis dirigidos por Alvar Nuρes Cabeza de Vaca. Ele e seus soldados iniciaram uma jornada atravιs da rota indνgena do Peabirϊ que ia da costa brasileira ao Peru. Eles saνram do litoral catarinense e mais adiante descobririam as Cataratas do Iguaηu que ficam na mesma rota. A histσria deste homem ι fabulosa, uma das mais impressionates que jα li ou ouvi falar em toda minha vida. Como era costume naqueles tempos, algum soldado da expediηγo gravou na rocha uma cruz e mais sinais dizendo que cristγos haviam passado por ali. Infelizmente alguns vβndalos andaram escrevendo seus nomes idiotas nas pedras nos ϊltimos anos, jα que este monumento estα desprotegido.
Esta ι provavelmente a mais velha cruz feita no sul do Brasil, sιculo 16.
