The new Palacio Legislativo is the only post-modern building in Asuncion's center, and it was in large parts financed by Taiwan. It was kind of sad to see homeless children from the neighboring shanty barracks playing on the stairs of this modern flashy building. I wonder what the legislator think when they look outside their window and see these abandoned children.
Palacio de Gobierno
This is probably the most imposing buiding in Asuncion (there are not that many...), overlooking the banks of the Parana. Under dictator Stroessner, approaching and photographing this building would have been a very dangerous undertaking and you could have been shot! Nowadays, it is easier to take a picture, but I still did not find a way to get in...
Not as big or important as the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires, Asuncion's Legislative Palace , built in 1857 is another building worth visiting in Asuncion.
This cathedral in front of the Plaza Juan de Salazar has seen better days, but remains one of the nicer places to visit in Asuncion.
This is on the Plaza de los Heroes and houses the remains of several military figures that died in Paraguay's lunatic war against the tri-partite alliance of Brazil, Argentina, and Bolivia in the 1870 (the Chaco War). Paraguay lost most of its territiories as well as most of its male population during that war and seemed to have never fully recovered.
