  • Typical experience. It is interesting. It is the typical palaces of the colony. If you were elsewhere in the region, you will see something similar.

  • Although it has a striking and imposing building, it is not unlike hundreds of public buildings or Government of several American countries.

  • Seen from outside, or sitting at the front in one of the most emblematic restaurants in the city, stands the Palace of government showing the Majesty of a people and a place where complex situations in the history of the Paraguay have been discussed. Between its walls we are going towards a silent past that shows that, in the 21st century it has remained stoic accompanying the Paraguayans and demonstrating the richness of an idiosyncrasy that in the 21st century seems to whisper in his ear fantastic legends of a a city that is always alive.
