This really is the most interesting thing to see in Asuncion and currently at least, it's top sight. That's a very sad indictment on the city, but it's unfortunately true. Very close to the homeless encampment that dominates Plaza Armas and the surrounding area, the...More

The day we were there we were able to go inside. Quite a nice church but the seats looked uncomfortable. The most striking feature is the flat ceiling. we have never seen anything similar elsewhere.
