Encarnacion

(4.3/5 based on 900+ reviews for 7 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, beaches, sightseeing

Pearl of the South

Encarnacion offers a good selection of cultural and natural attractions. Founded in 1615 as a Jesuit mission, the city experienced a boom in development after the building of a regional railway system in 1854. A popular tourist destination, Encarnacion features riverside beaches providing a little waterfront relaxation for residents and visitors to a landlocked nation. A southerly location endows the area with a relatively cool climate, making tours of Encarnacion and nearby historical ruins and architectural highlights pleasant even at the height of the summer season.
