There's a little place in Asunción that's getting noticed and talked about a lot lately - the Loma San Jerónimo neighborhood a few minutes away from the capital's downtown. Recognized as a cultural and historical patrimony of the city, the project is expected to be the new tourist attraction. Due to its unique appeal, it was even spotted by The New York Times and recommended as a must-see when visiting Paraguay.
San Jerónimo" has the particularity of its colourful streets and a humble but cool atmosphere. At the end of the entrance corridor, I found the Information Center, where visitors can sign the guestbook and purchase souvenirs. In the highest point of the neighborhood, there's the San Jerónimo church and the Mirador, where I could get the most amazing view of the city of Asunción. On Sundays, there are guided tours and big fairs with cheap but great typical Paraguayan food, art, music and vintage items!
