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.

  • It is a small museum, but well taken care of and the guide told us details of Paraguayan History, as well as of each constant there. I really enjoyed.

  • Museum to do, century in a beautiful colonial House, for those that the history of the country interested, with a fine collection of sculptures Franciscan and Jesuit from 17 & 18th. Free.

  • It is a nice place to understand the History of Paraguay and to visit an interesting point of interest in the middle of the city.

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