  • She definitely draws attention by the porte and daring architecture. The gardens are well maintained, and the night lighting adds a charm. Need some kind of tour.

  • The Centre of Asunción is generally dirty and unkempt, very secure building and never cease to appreciate the environment.

  • This Is The Home Of The President Of Paraguay. The most beautiful place in the city. Around a lot of police, did not come up, but the photo you can do without problems. Parking on the roadside nearby is prohibited. Recently put signature Asuncion, near where even local photographed.

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.
