La Paz and the altiplano: La Paz city tour

La Paz city tour

Bolivia's administrative capital is a beguiling place, a modern-day Andean city with an abiding sense of the mysticism of the ancients. This ramshackle city of steep sloping streets bustles with activity, and the streets are lined with traders in traditional Aymara costume offering their goods. A highlight in the heart of the city is the famous Witches' Market, brimming with potions, amulets and ritual offerings including gruesome dried llama fetuses.

Discover the historic centre with its quaint Spanish colonial buildings, from the Governmental Palace to the cathedral. Picturesque Jaen Street is a typical colonial alley which has been restored to its former glory.

La Paz is built in a mountain bowl: there are  several viewpoints where you can have a panoramic view over the city straddling the steep slopes and following its modest river down a narrowing valley

Some excursions offer a trip out of the city to visit the nearby Valley of the Moon, an aptly named landscape of otherworldly rock formations.
