  • Directly opposite the Park and tent, where beggars. The area around unsafe-a lot of unpleasant people. At the heart of many police, but it is not strongly rescues. Online photo gallery downtown. In fact, nothing but junk. Fountains don't work, buildings and monuments in a very neglected ... I do not advise taking out expensive camera here. I was shooting on a smartphone. Once again, not get better too. If you want to walk in the center of Asuncion, the advise Street President Franco, Palma, Estrella-there is much calmer.

  • The building was stormed by angry protesters probably last year, the facade is heavily damaged. A visit is not possible. All fenced. On the square before hundreds homeless, that dwell here.

  • A beautiful building, but no different than Brazil. A lot of people asking in front of the building, but well policed around.
