Asunción is the capital of the fifth smallest country in Latin America. Its geographical location is important in its history due to the limits of different rivers and its irregular nature, that is, it has numerous hills. Do you know the name of all of them? At the end of our Free Walking tour Asunción you will be able to name them.
Asunción, in addition to being the capital of Paraguay, is the one with the greatest cultural activity in the same country, with its epicenter in the Ignacio A. Pane Municipal Theater, built in 1843, and continuing with the Municipal Library, the National Library and the Roosevelt Library.
The city has a large number of museums that, although they are characterized by being small, contain a great cultural value that makes it the American Capital of Culture.
Founded in 1537, the so-called Mother of Cities is defined as an "island surrounded by land" by Augusto Roa Bastos, the code name of the city that gives its name to its Municipal Library. The fact that its geography denotes lack of sea does not necessarily mean that it does not have a beach. The beach of the bay offers the possibility of riding a boat for less than two euros.
Of course, the gastronomic offer of Asunción is not scarce, where Market 4 offers you the largest commercial space in the center to buy different products to taste.
