Plaza Uruguaya, Asuncion

(3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Take a break from sightseeing at Plaza Uruguaya, a quaint plaza originally the location of the Convent of San Francisco during colonial times. Today people stop to relax on a bench and watch the life of the city go by in this small plaza. Take in the surrounding statues and greenery, or go shopping for a souvenir at the small huts that sell items, particularly Spanish books. On the outskirts of the plaza sit small cafes, or check out the nearby historical train station to see some of the standing history of the area. Put Plaza Uruguaya into our Asuncion travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is a place steeped in history as it is located opposite the station of Railroad (which is no longer active), is reading, esparicimiento and food fairs. Emblematic as meeting point for the different manifestations that can be carried out in downtown Asuncion, as well as start of student parades.

  • Very well wooded, with benches and gates everywhere is a perfect place to meet friends and lovers. Also it is very frequented by sellers of Chipa (typical cookie, made with flour) and other stalls.

  • One of the traditional places of Asunción, very clean, cared for, especially for walking and resting.

  • A must see and visit while in Paraguay. From souvenirs to beautiful views of the harbor , this plaza is 21st century world class facility in a struggling economy.
  • Not much here for a tourist to see. Just an oasis of green in the urban landscape. I visited on a Sunday afternoon and it seemed to be a pretty friendly place. Kids were were playing on the swing sets, young parents were walking their toddlers, and lovers were cuddling on the benches.
  • Sometimes this park is great but other times its just OK. A nice place to sit on a bench and relax, unless there is someone asleep on it
  • Nice park
  • ¡HERMOSA!
