Old Mexico

The Cathedral in Central La Paz is a step back to the Old Mexico. Church bells ringing and the structure do reminiscent of hundreds of years ago. A must see for everyone

Not impress of the upkeep and not so historical there's nothing to be surprise like a wow factor.... Very simple less parking and less touristy not unlike the cathedrals in Austria, or European countries.

This is a nice very small church in the middle of town. You can walk around or try some of the small coffee shops or restaurants around it.

Nice, traditional Spainish architecture made all festive for the Christmas Holidays. Friendly, enjoyable atmosphere and open to wander in and have a look.
