“For tourist a must see place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

When visiting La Paz as a tourist, this is one of the must see places. Perhaps it's nothing special architecture-wise, but from a historical point of view, this is an important place. Read about the history and you'll appreciate the "Burned Palace" or "Palacio Quemado" and the other buildings that represent the powers in Bolivia (Cathedral and Parliament building)
It's also good place for people watching and a good starting point for more sightseeing.It's easy to walk downhill towards the Prado and Sagarnaga Street. Admire the colonial buildings in the side streets, like the one where the Museum for Ethnography is housed.

“Ok. If you are in La Paz...just go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

So, The Presidencial Palace in a very ordinary Plaza, once you are in La Paz I think it worths the visit and a couple of photos. And thats it.

“Families, pigeons, pictures...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is the main square in La Paz. It's where the Government Palace is. Very nice in the afternoon. Families gather around with their kids and throw corn to the pigeons. A good place to start a walk towards the old part of town and make it till the witch market.

“Fun to feed the pigeons”

I just had a blast feeding the birds and having them land all over me. It was funny to try and freak my girlfriend out as well. Some cool buildings around to
