Obligado is a town in the Itapúa department of Paraguay. Commonly known as the Capital City of Cooperativism or Industrial Capital City of Itapúa.


The Argentinian Pastor Servando Obligado owned the lands that would later be Obligado. The city was founded on May 25, 1912 by German colonists who bought the ground.

It was upgraded to District in Juny 20, 1955.

Obligado, with Hohenau and Bella Vista, form a productive unit called "Colonias Unidas".
