it was an interesting church but it is not a must to do in la Paz, pretty similar to the many churches in Peru with mixed artworks
It opens only at 4pm, it’s rather dark inside, and signs on the wall inside indicate that photography is forbidden. The church itself is a fairly impressive structure when viewed from the street, but inside it’s rather plain, as far as catholic cathedrals are concerned. The only paintings and decoration is in the vestibule up front, with only some basic... More

This 350 year old church is amazing in terms of both history and architecture! It also has a nice museum. Not so much the glass cases full of old things museum, but more of a walking tour which includes the bell tower with a great view of that area of La Paz. Basically, originally there were two cathedrals built in... More
