For a piece of Paraguayan history, visit Cultural Center of the Republic, a museum containing many tidbits from the local culture. The museum is situated in the Cabildo building, a colonial-era mansion and seat of the first Paraguayan Senate, later housing the Congress. Admire the imposing pink facade of the building and explore the museum exhibits inside. Varied items showcased include important political documents, pottery, tools, and everyday items from the indigenous community. See the collections of modern and colonial artworks, an exhibit dedicated to Paraguayan music and dance, or one of the other collections of cultural pieces. Put Cultural Center of the Republic and other Asuncion attractions into our Asuncion sightseeing app, and watch your holiday take shape.
