Paraguay: Asunción

The capital of Paraguay is Asunción. The name translated means “ascent” or “ascension”. This refers to the Assumption of Mary, a major holiday of the Catholic Church on August 15th. The full name of the city of Asunción is: La Muy Noble y Leal Ciudad de Nuestra Señora Santa Maria de la Asunción . This can be translated as: The venerable city of our Holy Mary.

Asunción is located on the banks of the Paraguay River. In 1537, Asunción was founded as a fortress by the Spaniard Juan de Salazar y Espinosa. Today the city is the country’s cultural and economic center. 750,000 people live in Asunción, which makes it the largest city in the country. If you add the residents all around (metropolitan area), you get 2.6 million people. That corresponds to a third of the country’s population.
