Asuncion is the thriving social, political, economic and cultural centre of Paraguay. The city was founded in 1537 and is situated on the banks of the Rio Paraguay some seven hundred miles from the sea. Even today, Asuncion still has an air of remoteness about it. The city has undergone a construction boom and has a modern infrastructure but despite this the downtown area retains an intimate 19th century feel with many historic buildings and orange trees lining the narrow streets and alleys.
