  • The best thing we have in Paraguay, where the village gives shows of their faith to the Virgin of Caacupé patron of the Paraguay.

  • Beautiful Basilica with much history. Ideal for touring not holidays, with a stripped-down but cozy interior that invites to prayer.

  • If they go to the Cathedral come to see the tourist route to Lookout! You are telling in murals the legend of the image of the Virgin of Caacupé.

  • 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.
