Visit the historically significant Casa de la Independencia, where emancipation from Spain was planned and announced in 1811. The colonial-era house dates back to 1772 and was used to host secret meetings of conspirators against the Spanish government. Since 1965, the building serves as a museum and displays furniture and other artifacts from the period. View portraits of the movement's leaders, observe the large mural in the courtyard, or walk through the "Historical Alley," where a group of patriots gathered before walking to the governor's house to claim independence. Put Casa de la Independencia into our Asuncion vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Asuncion.

  • A historical site and cultural obligatory visit for locals and foreigners. It stays in good care and keeps alive our national history!

  • It is the oldest building in town, a colonial House where happened the meetings of Paraguay's independence movement. But what caught my attention most was the collection of religious pieces that belonged to the Jesuits. Worth a quick visit.

  • Worth knowing. Shows a little of what the city for more than 100 years ago. Has a bit of life and history of the country.

  • nothing to do with independence. it's just a house. doesn't worth it visiting
  • Make sure to check the map hanging in the office wall - it is from a time when Paraguay had access to the sea!
