Mother of Cities
Asunción is the capital city of Paraguay and one of the oldest settlements in South America. In the past, colonial expeditions departed from Asunción to establish other important cities, leading to its nickname as the ‘Mother of Cities'.
As the country's cultural heartbeat and economic centre, Asunción is undergoing an impressive economic boom that's resulting in widespread development across the city. Today, you'll find charming colonial buildings intermingling with modern office buildings, bustling shopping malls, and trendy eateries.
