The Salto das Sete Quedas do Guaíra were a series of immense waterfalls on the Paraná River along the border between Brazil and Paraguay. It was located near the cities Guaíra (Brazil) and Salto de Guaíra (Paraguay).

The falls were known as more stunning as the Iguazu Falls and the most powerful in the world with a flow rate double that of the Niagara Falls.

The falls were submerged 1982 when the 7'760 metres long and 196 metres high Itaipu Dam was built downriver.
