Visit the heroic city of Paysandu

Between December 1864 and the first days of 1865, the city of Paysandu was besieged by General Venancio Flores, whose allies were Brazilian and Argentine soldiers and ships. The defense, organized by the Gral. Leandro Gomez, brought together about a thousand men, among whom there were several civilians and they precariously endured the bombing of the invading troops that had nearly 15,000 soldiers. This episode, not only gave the nickname of Heroic to the city of Paysandu, but it was also the preamble of one of the greatest tragedies of America: the Paraguayan War.
Camino de Leandro Gómez (The Way of Leandro Gomez) is an experiential proposal that takes visitors along emblematic sites and includes anecdotes and stories of this heroic feat.
