Casa de la Independencia, Asuncion
(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.
