Asunci�n

The capital of Paraguay is in the south of the country, near the joining of the Paraguay and Pilcomayo rivers.

Founded on August 15, 1537, the fort was named Nuestra Se�ora de la Asunci�n; in celebration of the August 15th feast day of the Assumption of the Virgin.

It went on to serve as the administrative centre of the R�o de la Plata region of the viceroyalty of Peru, until 1617.

Asunci�n is not as isolated as it seems; it's connected by rail and river with Buenos Aires and other South American cities.

The Chaco

The Gran Chaco is the region to the west of the Paraguay River - grassy plains and scrub forests that extend into Bolivia, Argentina, and Brazil.

In the summer rainy season, December to April, the region is subject to flooding and large areas become swampy.

Few roads and railways cross the Chaco, so the isolated settlements tend to be occupied by the Paraguayan army or Mennonite communities.

Boundary disputes escalated into the Chaco War, in 1929, when Bolivia invaded an area claimed by Paraguay.

Most Paraguayans have some Guaran� ancestry; a great influence on the culture.

Encarnacion

Founded as Itap�a, in 1632, the former Jesuits' mission, or reduccione, is Paraguay's southern road and rail terminus.

Villa Concepci�n
