Missing some access with ramps and parking lots. Does not pay to enter except to the viewpoint of the dome from where there is a beautiful view of the mountains and some very beautiful murals which tell the story of the Virgin. At night it is closed but you can see the altar from the lattice site.show original
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.
