Great place to visit while in Asuncion. You have Art galleries, theater, plays and the finish with a drink with a great view to the Lopez's Palace (President's administrative office). Come and visit, you won't regret it

Manzana de la Rivera are several houses of the colonial period nice and well mantained, close to the Government Palace. There is a library at one of the buildings and a Museum with artifacts, drawings and photographs of old Asunción.

The museum itself is quite interesting but we all peferred the buildings themselves. Entry is free and you'll need 30-60 minutes depending on what is being shown.
