Scatttered around town are a series of charismatic statues of native birds by local artist Ramón Vásquez. The walk is only a few kilometers, but is a pleasant way to get to know the city, passing the major sights and taking in a series of attractive murals that depict Paraguayan history. Start on the plaza.

A booklet in Spanish is available from IDEAL Eco-hostel, explaining the cultural and ecological significance of the species depicted.
