  • It is a place surrounded by the darkness of history. Each place is counting you ordered some events of what was the independence of Paraguay. Sometimes, it is as if the rooms said you in a low tone that there have not passed the years, only by outside the city is changing, but they are the trunk of memories so that all Paraguayan and visitors know that they are based on a history of brave men and ca peace make their own decisions in the midst of a ritual of tereré that is softening amid the oppressive heat of the city.

  • As the name implies, the structure is that of an old House. Very well maintained, the location still offers guides for explanation of the historical importance of the site, as well as furniture and objects of important personalities in the process of independence of the country. The mosaic to your input, demonstrating the main constructions of the time in the region.
