  • We traveled from Asunción to Ciudad del Este on Sunday and were lucky to be able to participate of the religious feast of December at the shrine of Caacupé. Many people walk from neighboring places, quite trade as usually presented this holiday season but more importantly many people praying more earnestly and participating in the Festival of the Virgin. The sanctuary is beautiful.

  • Beautiful architecture for this ancient basilica located in Paraguay to little more than 1 hour and a half by car (direction towards Ciudad del Este). Interesting myth or legend which is behind its construction. You should visit it to understand the tranquility that transmits.
