It is a must, specially if you are interested in the history of Paraguay. If you do not know the history of Paraguay, I suggest a guided visit.

A place to visit in downtown. It's one of the core centers of Asuncion. Gotta go and appreciate it, by day or by night. Both are awesome! And there are always activities around the park, so you'll have a complete tour of downtown.

You could pretty much see the Cathedral, Theather, Goverment Palace, Legislative building ,and Avenida Costanera in one day. Therefore is it easy to add this to your list as well but I would show up around 4:30 pm when the Color Guard comes and does the flag ceremony each day except Sunday I noticed. Great architecture and environment surrounding with... More

It is the national pantheon of the heroes, the tomb of the unknown soldier and also a small Chapel . Nice inside and beautiful outside especially at night.

From our favorit place to eat and drink, Lido, there is a view to this place just across the street. We saw the pretty young soldiers standing in there finest uniforms with antique rifles and wanted to see what was indoor.

On the outside it looks like a small chapel but actually is a monument to the heroes of Paraguay, is guarded by two guards that give more solemnity to the monument.

No big deal really, just a room with coffins and some statues. I have kind of a hard time enjoying the memory of these men, after having read about Fransisco Solano Lopez torturing animals in his childhood, harsh treatment of non Spanish immigrants and of course involving Paraguay in the disastrous war of the triple alliance.
