Train Station

One of the historical icons of Asuncion is the train station formerly known as "Estación San Fracisco"which is located downtown Asuncion.
The European architect Alonzo Taylor directed the construction which was finshed in 1861.
I recently purchased a painting of the train station by artist Roberto Morelli. His painting depicts the train station in its earlier days.

Amazingly the train still runs, but only for tourist rides.
