tombs of old leaders

We visited the Plaza de los Héroes today, with its collection of past leaders (and dictators) of Paraguay. Funny thing is, some of them aren't even there - the first president, the self-titled El Supremo, was thrown to the gators by the people he trodded upon during his time, and Señor Lopez, instigator of the War of the Triple Alliance, isn't here. I think he's still buried in the north of the country, but I don't recall exactly. Quite the place, anyway.
