Once the tripoint town on the border with Argentina and Uruguay (before Barra do Quaraí got town status in 1995), Uruguaiana remains a place of transit for all 3 nationalities, and a convenient gateway to Brazil for those in Argentina, Paraguay or Uruguay, roughly equidistant from the three nearest countries’ capitals: Buenos Aires (678 km away), Asunción (679 km away) and Montevideo (709 km away).
