When I visited Paraguay, I decided to go to the City of Caacupé, because it is a place that Paraguayans use to talk about as an important place for them.
In the City of Caacupe, is located the sanctuary of the Virgin of Caacupe, which is the white building with the black dome located in these photos. It is a pilgrimage place.
December 8, is the day of the celebration of the Virgin, although the festivities start nine days before. An anecdote about this date that our guide told us is that the traffic that goes to Caacupé from the surrounding places, including the Capital City of Asuncion, stops completely and it is very difficult to pass for various hours, because there are hundreds of people walking to the church, not only on the sidewalks but also on the highways. So it is not recommended to pass over there by car on those dates.
