Panteon Nacional de los Heroes, Asuncion

3.8
#3 of 28 in Sightseeing in Asuncion
Monument Architectural Building
Panteon Nacional de los Heroes keeps the memories of the country's involvement in many wars alive with a memorial to fallen soldiers. Construction of the landmark started in 1864 under leadership of Francisco Solano Lopez, who ironically led the country into a disastrous war shortly thereafter. Lopez’s body is held in the memorial along with his fellow soldiers and two unknown Paraguay soldiers; it was finally completed in 1936. Notice the plaques laid by former foes, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Uruguay, which show that old disputes are forgiven. Take a moment to absorb the history and feel the somber mood of the memorial.

  • Regal, pristine, neoclassical style. Inspired by the famous Paris Pantheon, mausoleum of oratorio and present proceres of get too independent and national characters like Don Carlos Antonio López, Mariscal Francisco Solano López. One of the most beautiful monumetos of assumption of much value to me as a student of architecture. Currently being restored to some architecture flaws.

  • The place was closed. What little I saw, you can see the detail of the facade. A shame not to know!

  • It is a temple, where lie the remains of Paraguayans heroes, of independence, the war of Paraguay (Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay against Paraguay) and the war of Chaco (Paraguay and Bolivia) the interesting thing is the architecture of the building, is located in front of one of the most popular bars in Asunción, on his forehead is the guard of the presidential escort with typical uniforms of the time (similar to the Switzerland of the Vatican guard) with those who do not can joke, nor trying to make them laugh. Between silent, do not use the camera's flash, and remember that it is a grave of the national heroes.

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.
