    Huge construction. At the same time it is simple as ornaments. Both external and external. Very devout faithful are. And their Virgin Patron Saint in the main altar. Ornaments there my wealth in metals stones or impressive works. Why Temple stands out with his personality. You can climb to the top with a narrow spiral staircase. Impaired thinking... well...

    Visit without regard to religious and well worth revisiting a monumental place neighborhood one wheel. St. Mary's Watch, such as the roof and look good!

Where to stay in Caacupe

Make sure you book well in advance if planning on visiting Caacupe for the festival in December, as the town has a only few scattered hotels. Both simple and luxury options exist, though accommodations remain pretty scant in general. Consider staying in Asuncion, the nation's capital and largest city. Located around an hour and a half from Caacupe by car, the capital offers a wide range of lodgings, with hotels of all sizes, rental apartments, and plenty more.
