Description:
Coronel Oviedo is a city in Paraguay. It is the capital of the Caaguazú Department, about 150 kilometers east of Asunción.

The city has a population of about 52,400 (2006 Estimate) and is the hometown of president Nicanor Duarte Frutos. Coronel Oviedo is an important transit point, as it lies halfway between Asunción and Ciudad del Este. In addition, it sits at the intersection of highways Ruta 2, Ruta 7 and Ruta 8.

The moniker for the city is the "Capital of Work" or capital de trabajo in Spanish.

The original name of the city at the time of its founding was "Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Ajos" Or "Our Lady of the Rosary of Garlic", as the cultivation of garlic was a prominent local cash crop and founded a significant base for trade in the city. The city is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Coronel Oviedo.
