  • Linda Church, the images of saints are beautiful, great. Place of peace. But the smell of pee is very strong inside and outside the Cathedral. I think square is unkempt, should urinate anywhere ...

  • It is the main Cathedral of the city. Located in the Centre, is beautifully illuminated at night. The inside is very beautiful and rich interior. Definitely worth a visit, is the main landmark of the town.

  • Great place to visit and pray in Assunción! Many masses scheduled
  • It was renovated in 2015 to receive the first South American Pope in history.
  • Paraguay
  • Excellent place to visit to the Blessed Sacrament, prayer, and hear mass. Highly recommended. Speaking of infrastructure, it is one of the most important churches of the country without forgetting that it is the principal of the city of Asunción.

  • 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.
