but it's scarcely a thrilling experience. It's a quite simple, little-adorned cathedral in comparison to so many in Latin America and Europe. This might be due to the devastating wars that Paraguay has experienced. I suspect that this church was stripped of any lavish adornments...More

This church was quiet and locked tight when I tried to visit in the middle of the afternoon. Nothing to see.

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.

Located in the town centre this cathedral has a beautiful architectural design at the front of the building and inside. The sides of it are less impressive

Went to Sunday Mass here. The exterior and interior of the cathedral are magnificent. After Mass I met the Archbishop and got a photo with him. I enjoyed speaking with some of the parishioners after Mass too.
