It has no ghosts or tragedies behind it, but Carlota Palmerola Castle is certainly mysterious. It is located in the city of Areguá, three-quarters of an hour away from Asunción. The National Tourism Office (Calle Palma, 468) offers a private minibus service, leaving on Sundays at 9am to promote tourism to this region and its castle, which has just been opened to the public. The building dates back to 1897 and in 1904, it was opened as the Palmerola Ayala family's ballroom and venue for social events, with a unique architectural style between medieval and neo-gothic, demonstrating its owners' social class. The last heir donated the castle and its gardens to the Dominican nuns who have tried to keep the interior of the emblematic building intact, with period furniture and clothing (including tunics of the priests who celebrated mass in the castle chapel), as well as photographs and objects belonging to the family.
