Visit the historically significant Casa de la Independencia, where emancipation from Spain was planned and announced in 1811.

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.

  • I love the House of independence, I've done the tour several times and always find something of history in its corners and details. Admission is free and is located in the Centre of the city of Asunción. It is a journey that is not time-consuming, but worth the experience

  • Visit the Casa de la independencia on a rainy day and it was a pleasant surprise. The House was built in the 18th century and is preserved with many furniture, around the time. Is small but very worth the visit. One of the employees approached us and told us a lot of local history. We love

  • To learn how they lived before, their modus vivendi, and pass some of the Paraguayan independence itself.
