In 1740-1745 a fortification called Nuestra Senora de los Angeles was erected at the entrance; it is still standing, on a steep bluff overlooking the sea, and is one of the most picturesque of the old fortifications of the island.
The church of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe (modernized with a shingle roof and a wooden steeple) contains interesting paintings and antique wood-carvings.
ASUNCION (NUESTRA SENORA DE LA ASUNCION), a city and port of Paraguay, and capital of the republic, on the left bank of the Paraguay river in 25° 16' 04" S., 57° 42' 40" W., and 970 m.
The town is essentially a residence suburb of the capital, and has some rather pretty streets and squares and some old and interesting churches (including Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion, 1714 - 1721).
The best-known silver mines are the Rosario, from which about $90,000,000 had been extracted up to the last decade of the 19th century, and the Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de los Reyes, discovered early in the 19th century and yielding over $85,000,000 before its close.
