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.

Nice decorations but nothing special. On main road, not surrounded by greenery. Spacious inside. An oasis from the noise and heat. Opening hours are unreliable.

I was dying to see this church from the inside, but unfortunately it was closed on the Sunday I spent in Asuncion. There were very few people outside that day but I took some good pictures of the church, and because of a missed attraction like this I am returning to Asuncion in January 2012. This church is worth the... More
