It is located alang the Parana River wi twa types o beaches: ane wi shallow depths in which ye can basically cross a lang stretch o the river an a deep ane juist athin a few meters frae the coast. The ceety haes a population o aboot 1,100.
Its name comes frae a little hill (cerrito) frae which ye can see the bonnie landscape o the ceety an the river. At the top o the hill lied a statue o umwhile Paraguayan preses Alfredo Stroessner which wis destroyed bi a lichtnin strike juist afore he wis owerthroun oot o the presidency in 1989. Some believe this event indicatit a "prediction" o the eventual fall o Stroessner.
A lot o Indian tribes inhabit the ceety, an several pre-Columbine tombs wur foond in an area that is vera hard tae reach because o the poor conditions o the dirt roads. The main tourist attraction o this ceety is the good fishin spots in the river.
