If you enjoy people watching or soaking up a little fresh air, this is the place to be in LaPaz. It deserves 15-30 minutes on a day tour of LaPaz.

Its good to laze around the square and chit chatting with friends and do some people watch or feeding the pigeon that surrounds all over the square itself. Surrounding it are all museum and presidential palace. If time allows, its good to slowly stroll around the area.

It is ask for more oxygen in this beautiful city around mountains exceeding 4000 m. Note that the tourist area is going to the Murillo plaza, friendly local people that gives you choose pleasant tourist destinations. Choose to travel to the salt flats of Uyuni.

Nice to see and visit. You have the presidential palace, congress and the cathedral facing the plaza. We were there just after New Years and Christmas decorations were still up. Walking there is nice but be sure you've had a chance to acclimatize first.
