#4 of 6 in Sightseeing in Itapua Department
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take refuge from the heat and stroll around Plaza de Armas. This public square offers manicured gardens and green spaces along with a small Japanese garden complete with its own Koi fish pond. Grab a hot dog or popcorn from local vendors, or if you feel like something more substantial, visit one of the shops or restaurants surrounding the park. There’s plenty of space to move around and blow off some steam, including a volleyball court; bring along a ball if you're up for a game.
