  • A place that brings together numerous pieces of art of the Paraguay, showing the Paraguayan culture, if you like the art, you can not miss it.

  • The Museum of clay is in a secondary street of the city and maybe that's why it may seem a little hidden. The visit is worth a lot! The space is very well assembled and organized. A visit not to be missed!

  • This time, like so many others, due to me working was alone and with little time. I asked Stone (which is spectacular), a salad with no meat was able to finish it by the amount you put me. And that Teo already knows my tastes and know not like too, but in the Museo del Barro are as well. Do not let no one raise the table hungry. Experience, sensational, as always. Ten food and exquisite treatment. So when step by La Bañeza I like staying to eat here. There is no comparison possible.

  • I arrived in Asuncion on Sunday for the first time, 17/07, and one of the rides that I have programmed me to do was the visit to the Museum of clay. The first surprise was that the Museum does not open on Sundays! Or Mondays, so, today, Tuesday, 19/07, consulted this page, where is the information that the Museum would be open. Bad surprise! Upon arriving at the Museum, it is closed for cleaning! I'm leaving, disappointed.

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.
