    Old plaza de armas of the Paraguayan capital, currently known as independence square gathers in lathe to some of the most interesting buildings of assumption. Emphasizes the building called Town Hall, currently a Museum, but in the past hosted a Spanish colonial institution of that name. There is also the so-called national pantheon of Heroes, built in the second half of the 19th century in the image and likeness of the Parisian invalids and that serves as a mausoleum to some illustrious names of the Paraguayan history. BORN IN PARAGUAY. I'M PARAGUAYAN.
