    We went to the Sunday mass, which caught our attention that was very traditionalist, all protocol is met. It was very good. The Cathedral itself is cute, but not of the best that we visited, in same Paraguay we state in other much more beautiful. Worth it, without a doubt, we will come back. It is also very close to the waterfront, can be combined with this tour or a walk through the Centre, since it is two blocks from Palma Street

    To know is worth to keep in mind that it only opens in the holidays and Sundays with mass 11:00 hrs., is in future installation of a pipe organ.

    Beautiful, great and very good energy, I had the opportunity to watch some masses here with the Bishop. An incredible spiritual experience, in this occasion the people who sang were very inspired and I was touched as nowhere else, not even in Rome felt so full as the masses I attended here.

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.
