About

Atyra is home to extensive natural and geological attractions with locals dedicated to environmental preservation. The town is often considered by the government to be one of the cleanest places in Paraguay with residents taking pride in keeping the streets clean. In addition to natural attractions, Atyra is home to historic colonial architecture as well as impressive newer builds.
