  • The day we were there we were able to go inside. Quite a nice church but the seats looked uncomfortable. The most striking feature is the flat ceiling. we have never seen anything similar elsewhere.  more »
  • Located in the town centre this cathedral has a beautiful architectural design at the front of the building and inside. The sides of it are less impressive  more »

  • It was renovated in 2015 to receive the first South American Pope in history.

  • One of the most beautiful Catholic churches of the Paraguay. Its altar is coated in silver. The acoustics of the place is noted. Despite having been inaugurated in 1845 it is very well preserved.
