One of the few things to see in Asuncion

I've recommend you visit this place in the day and then at night to see it illuminated in different colors.

We had the opportunity to take a guided tour inside the palace. People (militar and not) was very nice. In spite the weather was very warm and wet, was good to take a look on a lot of historic places inside the palace (however I did'nt had any idea on Paraguay history). Access to the different rooms was little bit... More

This is a nice building, however, we didn´ t know we were not allowed to approach so close and the guards did not seem to like that at all. We took pictures from a farther distance then.

I cannot say that I went inside, as I only visited it briefly at night but it was a beautiful building to see at night. The gardens have beautiful lighting and the building looks like a wonderfully built colonial structure.

You can't go in. Security everywhere so we didn't take photos. Me beautiful from the river side than the stretch side. Also, go to the Manzana opposite and thee is a good view from their café.

After being white for years, it is now pink! The flower gardens are kept so nice. Don't forget to walk around the back to the bayside view. Great to get there around sunset.

Very important landmark for any sightseeing tour of Asunción. It's a pretty building, which can be viewed from the downtown as well as the riverside. The building was inspired by French architecture, such as Versailles. The riverside is the actual front since important guests, in those days, arrived by water.

Does really not seem much, but is the presidential palace of Paraguy. We actually thought it looked better from the water side than from the front.

The Government Palace is a place that you should visit in a trip to Asunción. From there you have a nice view to Asunción Bay, the Port, the Costanera.

Except nice exterior view (that must be admired from big distance around 50 metros because of strict military guard) nothing is interesting there.
