  • Visit one of the Basilicas more big of Paraguay, located at the top of the Hill Caacupé, in the Department of Cordillera. The view from the lookout at the top of dome is fantastic, they are the mountain ranges, hills and the view of the beautiful countryside of the Paraguayan.

  • For devout Catholics of the Virgin Mary is a must. The Basilica is quite large, has a staircase that leads up to the Summit where the story is told during the steps, it is possible to see the city from another angle, the image of our Lady of caacupé is behind the altar where mass is done and you can visit her at the time of the celebration of the mass without disturbing. Recommend the ride up to the non-Catholics.

  • The cathedral itself is not a must-see, but the mass for a congregation of thousands of people from all over Paraguay is quite an ethnic experience.
