Laguna OcaSix kilometers south of town, Laguna Oca is a wetland area that has a popular beach, with food kiosks and canoe hire; once you wander away from the weekend crowds, there''s a great deal of birdlife to be spotted.
Museo HistoricoIn Casa Fotheringham, a pioneer residence that was the province`s first government house, the Museo Historico focuses on the foundation and development of Formosa. It`s small and well-organized. The province was part of the Paraguayan Chaco until the 19th-century War of the Triple Alliance, and the museum also houses uniforms, weapons and relics from the period. There are a few old indigenous weavings as well.
