One of Asuncion's few "must see" sights, sadly, the Pantheon is undergoing major reconstruction and is completely closed off to the public. Judging by the building site, it may be closed for considerable time to come. You can still get reasonable views of the dome...More

We were keen to visit this building, but the renovations go on and there was little to see or photograph. It contains the bodies of many Paraguayan heroes and many other interesting architects. when it reopens is definitely worth a visit.

There is no entry and only a small portion of the architecture is visible from outside due to the refurbishment it is currently undergoing.

The whole site is cordoned off with construction hoardings but is still guarded by the military,No access possible but looks to be a major draw when finished.

Closed for renovation with a graffiti ridden fence all around. Impossible to get a real sense of what may reside inside.

I love the small shrine that pays homage to Paraguayan heroes! a reminder of how these heroes sacrificed their lives to make Paraguay a better nation.

Unfortunately under restoration at the moment. You cannot enter and only see part of the exterior over boarding. There is an excellent souvenir market in the road alongside which seemed cheaper than other places in the city

Me and the wife nipped in for a look at the newly painted Panteon. I found this place suprisingly moving.

The building is an oratory of Virgin St Mary of Asuncion, tries to be a replica of Les Invalides Paris, but there are several tombs of national paraguayan heroes of their independence. It is free, open during the day and... More
