You could pretty much see the Cathedral, Theater, Government Palace, Legislative building ,and Avenida Costanera in one day. Good architecture but I have seen better cathedrals in my travels throughout the world. Just remember it is one of the highlights in the city of Asuncion and it may be something you don't want to miss.

It's lovely. When we arrived, Mass was already in progress so we waited to photograph the Statues and Altars. It is worth the visit. Absolutely wonderful.

The inside of the Catedral in interesting enough. For a Catedral I actually expected more, but worth a visit. Only open at services

This is worth a visit. Not always open, but a beautiful old church with lots of character and history. Enjoy the colonial architecture.

It's a very nice looking church right in the middle of down-town just a short walk from the river so you're bound to come across it. Unless you're fanatical about churches it's only really worth walking past between other stops.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Asuncion. Unfortunatly it is often locked so you can't go inside. It is within walking distance of many other sites in Asuncion.

We stopped by the Cathedral, you really can't miss it anyway. The gates were locked so unfortunately we could not take a look inside.
