Panteon Nacional de los Heroes, Asuncion
(4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A place where you can access part of the history of Paraguay. A place that you should visit if you are in Asunción.

  • Unfortunately it was closed for renovations when I went (Oct 2016) and we couldn't get in, but its architecture is beautiful and worth a visit anyway.

  • Was undergoing reforms in November 2016. There is a siding on the façade that does not allow nor observe building.
