    Asunción Dél-Amerika egyik legrégibb városa, mely a Városok Anyja néven is ismert, ugyanis kiindulópontja volt azoknak a gyarmatosító expedícióknak, melyek számos más város, köztük Buenos Aires megalapításához is vezettek. A város helyét Juan de Ayolas fedezte fel először, azonban a mai várost Nuestra Señora de la Asunción néven Juan de Salazar és Gonzalo de Mendoza alapította 1537. augusztus 15-én. 1731-ben itt tört ki az egyik legelső spanyol gyarmati uralom elleni felkelés. Az 1865 és 1870 között dúló Hármas szövetség háborújában Asunciónt brazil csapatok foglalták el és 1876-ig tartották megszállva. Asunción jobb negyedei az Avenia San Martin felé találhatók, ahol a paraguayi elitréteg amerikai típusú bevásárlóközpontjai találhatók. 2004. augusztus 1-jénegy bevásárlóközpontban keletkezett tűz következtében 464 ember halt meg, a sebesültek száma 409 volt. Sokan az ablakokon ugrottak ki, hogy megmeneküljenek a tűztől. Az áldozatok nagy számában az is közrejátszott, hogy a biztonsá...

    A város központja a kikötőtől nem messze fekvő Plaza de los Heroes és a Plaza Uruguaya környéke különösen az 1970-es és az 1980-as évekbenfejlődött sokat. Ekkor változott meg a korábbi gyarmati időkben kialakult városképe. Mindamellett eléggé leromlott képet mutat és éjszakánként veszélyes is lehet.
