  • Visit for the first time the Town Hall and Museum apreovechando visit my family in Uruguay, and all were pleasantly surprised. The staircase is of film! and the view is wonderful.

A place that if or if it should be included when visiting the Cathedral, the Pantheon of Heroes, the squares area... the bad is the poor state of the surrounding public spaces, and the feeling of insecurity. Preferred but only by day and very carefully!

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.
