La Paz City, Bolivia

La Paz

La Paz, the highest administrative capital in the world at a staggering 3,600m (11,800ft), is also one of the most spectacular.

Clinging tenuously to its steppes canyon walls dominated by magnificent snow-covered peaks of Mount Illimani, the city’s urban sprawl is both dramatic and breathtaking and a view that can be appreciated west of the city centre at Praque Laikacota.

A little more about La Paz

Tradition blends seamlessly with the 21st century in La Paz, from the intriguing witches’ market where outlandish souvenirs include dried toads and aphrodisiacs, to the endearingly beautiful colonial cathedral set alongside stately government buildings on Plaza Murillo. Several museums offer insight into Bolivia’s colonial and indigenous past, as do the houses on Calle Jaen, Plaza San Francisco and the Congresso Nacional. Folk music is prevalent throughout Andean culture and for dedicated fans a visit to watch traditional Andean music performed by local musicians in an authentic peñas (music club) is a must-see.
