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. Inside you see a pantheon lookalike room with sculptures of importent men and in the midle of the room... More

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. Don't bite the hand... More

The Panteon is not very big, but it´s beautiful. On Sundays it works as Church, and at 11am there is Catholic service over there. Around the Panteon you may buy souvenirs. Since you´re already there, go for a bite at Lido Bar, which is right across the street.

If you are coming from the states, you maybe in for a little disappointment when you visit historical sites such as el Panteon. It is a really cool place with lots of history, but when you are used to the Washington Monument, or the Statue of Liberty, the Panteon is a little, well, not the same. The other thing about...
