We stayed on this street in excellent Hostal Ananay, which was the saving grace. But otherwise it's a set of unremarkable museums - which we didn't feel would have been improved by some more English language or less surly staff.

Quaint street but nothing special, full of tedious, dull museums, the street is just like anyother, no idea why it got as many postive reviews.

Cafes, museums, old architecture, and plenty of charm. This is a delightful place to stroll with no cars. Be sure to look in on the museum of the Pacific.

This beautiful area and street shows La Paz as it was 100 years ago. It is very authentic with several meusems and old houses. Very nice to visit for a couple of hours
