This city, that boasts besides their safety (the world Organization for peace declared it in 2012 as World Capital of friendship for peace), known to preserve their identity and roots above all. Hence, in its streets we hear speak Spanish and Guarani, both official languages of the Republic of Paraguay. If you want to mingle with its people and better appreciate that flavor that speak, no better way to start our day giving a tour of the Mercado Municipal number 4, a picturesque place where we will check that the Guarani sellers are very colorful, wearing his typical suit and smoking big pure. In fact, there are find natural tobacco 100%, in addition to native fruits and other popular products such as the sopa paraguaya (cake of corn flour with cheese and onion), chipa (Paraguayan bread) or meat (Paraguay is a major exporter of this product and why Paraguayans roasts are famous).
