Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Good place tosit and enjoy a rest in the shade when walking around the city. fascinating to watch the friendly chess players and possible to challenge for a game.  more »
  • Plaza Uruguaya is one of the nicest ones in town. One that has not been claimed by the homeless and is kept reasonably well. There are nice sitting areas, as well as a playground for children.  more »

  • Beautiful plaza full of trees and right in downtown Asunción. Good place to start your walking tour of central Asunción.
  • Cool park in the outskirts of downtown.Popular with tourists and locals alike. Their are lots of hostels nearby and food carts too.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
