  • 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 peace that reigns in this place and the energy that you bathe is worthy of the! Place fantastic to be visited not only by Catholics, but also for all those in search of peace and positive energy, is near Asunción and is clearly marked on the road to reach without problems and can be a ride for the whole family

  • The most important thing to do in the city is without a doubt the Basilica. 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.

  • 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.
  • Must visit on Dec 8th
