This does not have the appeal of cathedrals you see in other Latin American capitals. A few feet in front of it seems to be a car park. There's also a favela just beyond with much of the population spilling over into the "park" in front of the car park in front of the cathedral.

The Metropolitan Cathedral is a simple church in the central part of Asuncion. It was open the Saturday morning we visited, but many areas were inaccessible in preparation for Pope Francis' visit in July. The cathedral interior was not ornate with a beautifully painted flat roof and a modern altar which faces the people. Worth a visit if you're in... More

Not like a cathedral. Simple but pleasant. Renovating it a little at the moment as Pope Francis will visit in mid July.

I attended here a Christmas concert on December 2014; and found the cathedral beautiful and worth visiting. Unfortunately it was not possible the next time I went, which was during the Holy Week. It was closed, there was nobody to give us information as to the opening hours. Que pena.

On a Saturday morning the Cathedral was closed and nobody in the sorroundings (includiong a Pólice Station), knew the hours of masses. The place did not look safe.

It's the largest and most elegant church in Asunción and it definitely deserves a visit. It is alos close to other attractions such as the Cabildo, the Plaza Uruguaya, the Government Palace and the Congress.

We stopped here on our way to the Presidential Palace on a Sunday and there was a solemn Catholic Mass being held at the time. It was impressive to see the believers sang along and follow all the rites out of memory.

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.
