Panteon Nacional de los Heroes, Asuncion

3.8
Panteon Nacional de los Heroes keeps the memories of the country's involvement in many wars alive with a memorial to fallen soldiers. Construction of the landmark started in 1864 under leadership of Francisco Solano Lopez, who ironically led the country into a disastrous war shortly thereafter. Lopez’s body is held in the memorial along with his fellow soldiers and two unknown Paraguay soldiers; it was finally completed in 1936. Notice the plaques laid by former foes, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Uruguay, which show that old disputes are forgiven. Take a moment to absorb the history and feel the somber mood of the memorial.

  • The Panteón is now an oratorio that is located right in the center of the city. We were on a Sunday where few things work in the region, so maybe there were a very large number of people selling from the most different articles and also asking for money in front of this site.

  • I was at the museum and found the same extremely beautiful. Lighting and decoration are extremely detailed. It's worth checking out.

  • Nice historical site. Takes a few minutes to walk around it and it is free. I wish there were plaques with more information about it.
  • Small but historic.
