Panteon Nacional de los Heroes, Asuncion

3.7
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.

  • It is a typical of the colonial era. It is interesting for a quick visit if these in the city.

  • Is one of the points of interest more well evaluated and visited Asuncion. Is in a square in the historic center of the city, near the palma Street, heart of electronics and clothing purchases in the Center. I was there in March 2018 and unfortunately is closed for renovations, so we couldn't see it

  • The visit is worth it, because we notice as a fact so ancient is still present in the daily life of the Paraguayan people. When I visited the place was packed and there were several people visiting. There is a guard held by military personnel, that alone is interesting. Worth a visit especially if the person knows a little history of the country, so you will know exactly what is and the importance of the site.

  • Beautiful and historic, although I did not enter the building.
  • Closed for repairs as of November 10th, 2017....
  • Paraguay
  • Historical place of the Centre of Asuncion, Capital of Paraguay. ♥️👌🏻✨UN place which is highly recommended for tourists. Especially should stroll along Palma Street which is a tourist street and if or if they should take a little walk, there you can buy handicrafts, restaurants, cafes, water heaters there are Paraguayan style, etc.

  • Very nice, but it's renovating a few 3 years! Finish the restoration.
