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.

Jaen has some really hip shops and cafes. Definitely a cool place to hang out and relax. Nice art galleries.

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

This street is probably one of the best looking streets in La Paz, we went at midday and were the only ones there. There are museums to visit, and I imagine the street comes alive to those with a guide and more information. Worth a look if you are staying nearby. There are some cafes, restaurants on the street, however... More

Our group did enjoy this this shot and narrow street that provided historical 19th century feel. Street takes you to excellent ethnic museum and nearby plaza.

This is a must visit in La Paz. The Jaen Street is full of museums worth visiting and is a great activity for a nice day in La Paz. I wouldn't go with small children since there aren't many things for them to do (only the Musical Instruments Museum would be suitable for kids)

The Calle Jaen is a small cobbled street a short walk (15 minutes approx) away from Plaza Murrillo. Worth it....very well restored buildings which have tasteful little shops at the bottom opening up onto the windy cobble stoned lane. At the top of the lane there are a number of museums. These are entered from the main one ... Museos... More
