Panteon Nacional de los Heroes, Asuncion

3.8
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.

  • The National Hero Temple, located in the centre of Asunción, is a building great building, but it is now being renovated without a full picture, where the famous president and cathedral are nearby.

  • The monument is beautiful, but unfortunately we couldn't meet because he was in retirement. But, certainly, it's worth a visit and, especially, take good pictures. Central location, easy to find, in a square.

  • A beautiful building (which reaches to see above the barrier created to give maintenance), in the heart of the city on Palma Street, although circulated by maintenance, people tells me that you have more than two years without access for work of maintenance. Dedicated to protect the remains of the heroes Paraguayans, place of the eternal flame to the memory.

  • Paraguay
  • 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.
