We suggest you to visit Atyrá, a delightful village surrounded by a lush vegetation, about 60 Km from the capital Asuncion, that allows you to escape from the stress and the noise of the city. Atyrá is located on the mountain system, extending from Rio Paraguay to Sierra Ybucui.
Its maximum altitude is 500 metres, but Atyrá is located at about 100 metres above sea level.
The village boasts many architectural attractions, as for instance the Central Church and the “Complejo Marianela”, that is very reminiscent of European monasteries and is unique in Paraguay.
It tooks 33 months of work and in 2007 this Training, Cultural and Religious Center was inaugurate by Italian Redemptorist Fathers, who worked in close collaboration with local people.
So, in a wonderful natural oasis they created a complex of 700 square meters, able to accomodate families, teenagers, religious and priests. Different categories of people who live together in a very well organized structure with plenty of space and surrounded by a enviable quiet.
The name “Marianela” is closely related to Italy, because it comes from the name of the Neapolitan District “Marianella”, where the founder of Redemptorist Missionaries was born, precisely Sant’Alfonso Maria de Liguori.
This complex has cultural and recreational spaces, a church, 93 rooms and several external areas for livestock and agriculture.
The cloister, the beautiful mosaics and the lush vegetation strike visitors very much and more and more numerous they go to visit the “Complejo Marianela”.
Mosaics are very original for their beauty and the liveliness of their colours and because they were created with second-hand materials (mainly marble and tile), but the result was an absolutely original chromatic explosion,
The carved in wood doors and windows are also very original, as well as the frames of the numerous paintings, denoting a very naive trait, however this does not mean it is less original.
The names of the artists who cooperated are precisely: Alarcón Pibernat, Roberto Morelli, Nino Sotelo, Jorge Von Horoc e Cinthia Stadecker. Therefore, art also shows a close union between the Italian people and the Paraguayan one, as well as architecture, that took advantage of Italian and Paraguayan architects.
Then a complex that saw a close union between two people also concerning the essential labour to complete the project.
The church of the Marianela Complex is dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi and contains inside a carved in the wood relic, that is an inheritance of Franciscan Friars, who went to Paraguay to evangelize the country.
