Plaza Uruguaya, Asuncion

2.9
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.

  • The last time I visited Asunción the Uruguayan square was very deteriorated and at night it was "no man's land". Now I found it removed, clean and cared for. At night, it has a "a giorno" lighting that offers a lot of security and is of very good aesthetics. A beautiful shady walk for a hot day or night. In addition to the magnificent statue of Artigas, the prosperous of Uruguay, has other works very enjoyable. You have to visit it!!

  • Plaza Uruguaya is a microcenter icon of the City of Asunción. This in front of the old train station (today trains no longer work in Paraguay) is a very well-treed square with interesting water fountains and sculptures. The EAGGF is that many times the Indians "take" the square and install their carpitas there, making their claims for months, causing dethrones in the time they remain there.

  • Although this square is pleasant, there is no overriding reason to visit it as opposed to other squares. Certainly a brief stop is not unrewarded but there is just nothing spectacular about it.  more »

  • Nice plaza.
  • Nice place to visit! Ther are others nice olaces surrounding it.
  • Nice park with benches and statues. A safe, comfortable place to hang out.
  • One of the best places in Asunción. Relaxed, but vibrant. A perfect place to spend a day in the shade watching life go by.
  • The best open air plaza in downtown asuncion, recently renovated and quite safe since then. Two bookstores in the plaza.
