The place (Manzana de La Rivera) is clean and nice with a good café. It has a wonderful view to the Government Palace. But Casa Viola was closed a Friday in visiting hours!

The complex is a a poorly renovated old house. There is really no reason why to come here. The exhibition in the other houses might be worth 5min of your time, but probably not more.

This is one of the oldest places in Asunción, but it's a beautiful one, it has a theater, a museum about the city history, a lovely courtyard and a wonderful bar!
