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.

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
