Although this square is pleasant, there is no overriding reason to visit it as opposed to other squares. Certainly a brief stop is not unrewarded but there is just nothing spectacular about it.

Place is just a big not very pretty park with homeless people living in tents right in the middle. Just pass through. May be more interesting if there’s some event going on.

Many places here to sit and relax, and the unique thing about this square are the bookstores that it has incorporated into the park. A great spot to explore Paraguay history

Just an ordinary square, not evenparticularly well-kept, a far cry from other South-American squares, especially considering that Asunciòn is a capital.

The plaza is a nice place to sit and people watch, but there's not a whole lot here. A few statues of poor quality dotted around the gardens, but otherwise, it's simply a nice spot to relax if you're wandering the city centre.

Plaza Uruguaya is one of the nicest ones in town. One that has not been claimed by the homeless and is kept reasonably well. There are nice sitting areas, as well as a playground for children.

It is my first time in a city park surrounded by a fence, even though it is in the heart of the city, dogs are not allowed either, I guess every country is different.
