  • It was one of the few Catholic holy sites in South America, and i felt the pride and awe of the people and Catholics in Paraguay. I could see the reverence of those who marveled at the beautiful façade and walked inside and prayed in front of the Statue of the Virgin. The hotel is located in the heart of The Kakupe.

  • It is in the vicinity of Asunción, I recommend Mr. Marcos to do the tour and move. We took around several tourist spots and we all liked them very much. This place is nice for its architecture and there is a viewpoint that you can enter until 4:45 pm
