  • The visitations by the historic centre of Asunción, the Palace of the Government should be included. Of beautiful architecture, with a well-kept garden, make up one of the attractions of the city.

  • Can and must improve. The Army guards won't let comes any closer than the sidewalk that's too far! With few options for tourism the Palace should be open for visitation. Lack of care with the tourist and also with the Palace that requires urgent painting.

Where to stay in Asuncion
