Panteón de los Héroes, Asunción, Paraguay

Paraguay is a landlocked country in South America. It is bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest.

Asunción is the capital and largest city of Paraguay.

The Panteon Nacional De Los Heroes is dedicated to the country’s history. It serves as a monument for those who gave their live for the country.

In front of the Pantheon you see the  Guarani vendors. These vendors open their stalls in the early morning only to close theirs at the setting of the sun. Their stalls are full of the Paraguayan traditional items of art like bows and arrows, headdresses, pottery and many others.
