4.3
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Asuncion
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.

Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
