Tours in Asunción

City Tour
A tour of the modern and colonial Asunción, including the city center and residential areas. Places of interest such as The House of Independence, the National Cathedral, the Government Palace, the Railway Station Рwhere you admire the oldest steam locomotive in South America in operation Рthe Pantheon of National Heroes, Avenida Marechal Lopez known as Avenida das Embaixadas, the Presidential Palace and Recova where you can buy handicrafts.

Ypacaraí Lake and handicrafts

This tour includes a visit to the Community of Luque where the famous Paraguayan harps and guitars are crafted, as well as the filigree jewels in gold and silver.¬†A little further on is Aregu√°, a city where the rich Paraguayan handicrafts are made.¬†Then we come across San Bernardino, a town on the edge of Lake Ypacara√≠, now the summer center of asunci√≥n’s wealthiest population.¬†Continue to Itaugu√°, producer center of the famous √Ďanduti, income based on the design of the spider web.¬†There the visitor can purchase towels, hammocks, coverings, leather bags, etc.

On his return, one visits the Church of Capiatá, from the 17th century. XVIII with its wood carvings and paintings made by the Indians, guided by the Franciscan priests.

A Day at the Farm
Paraguay, being a country of deep rural tradition Рagriculture and cattle Рoffers a huge amount of possibilities to enjoy peace and tranquility in scenarios where one has the impression that time has stopped. The Estancia San Carlos, just 45 minutes from Asunción, has 350 hectares dedicated to the creation of the Crioulo horse.

There the visitor will have the opportunity to do horseback riding as well as admire the Creole dexterity of the pedestrians in a true show of rodeo, lace, mastery and marking of cattle, traditional tasks of life in a Paraguayan Farm. At lunch, a typical asado will be served at the stake with salads and regional foods all accompanied by the sound of a set of Paraguayan music formed by harp and guitar. At the end of the day, return to the Hotel.

Community of Tobati
Visit that transports us in time, to the origins of the Indians who inhabited the region, their way of being and living.¬†Tobati is a small town 60 km from Asunci√≥n apparently just like the others.¬†However, as we delve deeper into the visit, we perceive the different social categories within their own roots.¬†After visiting the center, where ceramics and tiles are made in large clay ovens, we intern by dirt paths, in the upper region, on the escarpments of a small mountain range and then we access the humblest community, where we observe the way of working ceramics – as 2,000 years ago – the family life, their home, their chickens¬†, your backyard, your neighbors…
Full day tour with lunch and expert accompaniment.

Golden Circuit
Wide route through the Central Department, around Asunción, with a visit to historical places and national monuments. Baroque Franciscan Churches, Basilica of Caacupé, Lake Ypacaraí, San Bernardino, Paraguarí and Pirebebuy are some of the points of relevant interest in the history and trajectory of Paraguay.

Highlight to the Church of Yaguarón, true jewel of the Baroque, the only Franciscan church with the ceiling in polychrome wood that gives us the idea of what the ceilings of the churches built in the Jesuit Missions would look like. Full-day tour including craft shopping and lunch.
