(visited by Joao Carlos Teixeira and Eurídice Teixeira)

28-Nov-2004 -- Although we knew that this confluence is inaccessible by Prudentopolis, we went to this city with the intention of visiting its waterfalls. Prudentopolis is known as the city of the giant waterfalls. The São Francisco Waterfall is about 196 meters high and is among the highests waterfalls in Brazil (see visit #1). Other smaller waterfalls provide a beautiful show and they are appropriate for radical sports as rafting and rappel.
The Cassiano's Place is about 9,5 kilometers to the south of the confluence, however in the opposite margin of the Ivai River.
Having visited several interesting points in Prudentopolis, we steered for Ivai, on Sunday, to accomplish the visit to this confluence. After passing for Ivai we turned to the left and drove about 18 kilometers for a narrow bumpy dirt road.

We entered in the bean plantation and soon we saw the landowner, Mr. Marcos Tomacheski, which was making an inspection. We explained him our visit's purpose and he followed us until the border of the ciliary wood where we made the required pictures 50 meters off the exact point.
We didn't enter in the wood because it was very humid and the sight is not very significant. Behind the ciliary wood is the Ivai River that separates the cities of Prudentopolis and Ivai.
