Crystal Fall - day tour in a reduced group

1 review
Paraguay is a beautiful country that han't yet been fully discovered. We are passionate on showing and telling you everything about it, so you can discover it with us. <br><br>The best way to have.a lance of the authentic Paraguay in a day is taking you to the magnificent Crystal Fall, located in a virgin jungle area.<br><br>The trip is an adventure by itself, you should be aware that to get to the fall it's necessary to descend a long wooden stairway through the jungle which leads to a shallow river. <br>From there, we will walk from 10-15 minutes along the river until we reach the hidden fall, right in the middle of the wilderness.

This building is absolutely beautiful, and stands tall in the heart of a square that has a ton of homeless people living there. The pink color design on the blue sky background just adds to it's beauty!

The building held the legislative chamber during the dictatorship. We sat in the seats as our guide talked about life at that time. There was also a small but interesting museum relating to immigration to the country. A statue of the Spanish 'founder' of the city is in front of the building.

This museum is in the beautiful Cabildo. Unfortunately, the Cabildo is in a part of town full of shanties and could be in better repair. The museum itself houses many fine objects though the lighting could be better. I would recommend a short visit as the displays are worthwhile.

At a site, where there was a fort built in 1537, later converted into the governor's place, which in turn became the seat of Paraguay's executive, then of the legalislative, the Congreso Nacional, now exists since 2004 a museum called 'Centro Cultural de la Republica'. Many aspects are covered here. On the ground floor can be found paintings by contemporary Paraguyan artists, but also a work by Fernando Botero called 'Picnic de Escobar'. A room called 'Sala del Barro' shows among other items Arte Indigena. The 'Sala de Arte Sacra' has several wooden Franciscan style sculptures of saints. There is a rooom dedicated to the history of the Cabildo itself, while on the top floor two rooms deal with the music and cinema of Paraguay. The exhibition, which interested me the most, was the 'Museo del Inmigrante' on the ground floor. After the devastating defeat of Paraguay in 1870 against a triple-alliance of its neighbours and after an enormous loss of population, the country opened itself up to immigration to an extent hardly ever seen before or after that anywhere. There is plenty of information, also maps, about this period, so I could read about the Swiss, Japanese, Ukrainian or Mennonite immigration and many others.
