Piribebuy's Church

Piribebuy is a small town with a population of 21.800 (2006) in the Piribebuy District in the Cordillera Department of Paraguay. It was founded in 1636 by Martin Ledesma de Valderrama. Since its founding documents were burned during the War of the Triple Alliance, 8 March, 1636, was later appointed as its Day of Establishment. The patron saint of Piribebuy is Nande Jara Guazu (Guarani for "Our Great Lord") celebrated on January 18th.

2/3 of the population lives in the town, the other lives in the district.

The town of Piribebuy is further divided into the Barrios (Boroughs) of Centro, Santa Ana, San Blas, Maria Auxilliadora and Virgen de Rosario. Piribebuy is known for its Church "Dulce Nombre de Jesus" and also has a small museum dedicated to memorabilia from the War of Triple Alliance and Piribebuy's large role in the war.
