Built in the eighteenth century and renovated as part of the Manzana de la Rivera architectural complex, the Casa Viola houses the City Memorial Museum, which will take you back in time for a tour of Asunción through the ages. The collection is organized in such a way as to explain its evolution from a historical point of view, with ancestral objects from Guaraní culture, including a pre-Hispanic funeral casket, wood carvings and cement sculptures, with a mapped out journey of the city's development. But there is also an emphasis on describing Asunción through its own protagonists: residents in different eras have left records of avatars, wars, commemorations and appointments, and through the chroniclers of the time, testament manuscripts and other documents. The City Memorial Museum is filled with Guaraní ritual objects, typical instruments, old postcards from Asunción, and paintings.
