Pantheon of Heroes (Panteón de los Héroes)

Monument to the country's heroes

If you were given any thousand-guarani coins when you changed currency at Asunción airport, you'll see they are embossed with what is considered to be one of the seven treasures of Asunción's cultural Heritage: the Pantheon of Heroes and the chapel of Our Lady Saint Mary of the Assumption (oratorio de la Virgen Nuestra Señora Santa María de la Asunción). Located in almost the exact centre of the city, this early twentieth century burial site was inspired by Les Invalides in Paris, designed in the seventeenth century with the original idea of also being a mausoleum. Asunción's Pantheon of Heroes houses the mortal remains of important Paraguayan heroes, who are honoured on March 1st every year with politicians and military parades. If you get chance to go on a guided tour of the Pantheon and the chapel, you will discover the site's secrets and its importance in the history of the country.
