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. Put Plaza Uruguaya into our Asuncion travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    All surrounded this square is located in the Centre ... is revitalized and clean ... a quiet place to sit and relax after shopping on Palm Street.

    One of the best places in Asunción. Relaxed, but vibrant. A perfect place to spend a day in the shade watching life go by.

    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

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.
