  • As he is known, and what said the guide this Cathedral is one of the major attractions of the country, in fact you can see from almost all of the city and is the center of all the tourists who go to the city. With a nice story, mixing indigenous and Spanish, the Cathedral makes a pleasant place and which it is necessary to visit if it goes through the country, it should be noted that this place "nuestra Señora de los milagros" stands out for its name to where people are going to make requests and lueg or they perform "mandas" to give thanks for favors granted.

  • Miraculous Virgin of Caacupé, located in the sanctuary and to which all the faithful give up their promises and attend the same all the December 8 to receive the miracles she gives

  • A beautiful monument that is worth a visit even for those who are not religious. Go last Saturday before 8 December you can reserve surprises good or bad. The city is filled with pilgrimages to the Cathedral from around the country. I found a beautiful party pilgrimage of young Paraguayans, and for those who are familiar with the streets of a city like São Paulo, that was super safe. But maybe it's good to think well before you go with children.
