Plaza Uruguaya, Asuncion

3.0
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.

  • Just an ordinary square, not evenparticularly well-kept, a far cry from other South-American squares, especially considering that Asunciòn is a capital.  more »
  • On the day I was in Paraguayan capital this square, as well as one of the streets at your back, was taken by a party of food trucks, live music and handicraft. We stayed there until very late, and besides, it was pretty fun. I like this occupation of public places without fear and with citizens ' property.

  • Nice park with benches and statues. A safe, comfortable place to hang out.
  • The best open air plaza in downtown asuncion, recently renovated and quite safe since then. Two bookstores in the plaza.
  • One of the best places in Asunción. Relaxed, but vibrant. A perfect place to spend a day in the shade watching life go by.
  • Nothing special to see, a lot of beggars and dirt.
  • Beautiful plaza full of trees and right in downtown Asunción. Good place to start your walking tour of central Asunción.

Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
