  • The last time I visited Asunción the Uruguayan square was very deteriorated and at night it was "no man's land". Now I found it removed, clean and cared for. At night, it has a "a giorno" lighting that offers a lot of security and is of very good aesthetics. A beautiful shady walk for a hot day or night. In addition to the magnificent statue of Artigas, the prosperous of Uruguay, has other works very enjoyable. You have to visit it!!

  • Plaza Uruguaya is a microcenter icon of the City of Asunción. This in front of the old train station (today trains no longer work in Paraguay) is a very well-treed square with interesting water fountains and sculptures. The EAGGF is that many times the Indians "take" the square and install their carpitas there, making their claims for months, causing dethrones in the time they remain there.
