“Peaceful gathering point”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

Nothing special, but check out the clocks turned around as of June 2014 to try and make a movement for all countries here south of the equator. Nice people watching, many pigeons, jump-off point to other popular spots and streets in town.

“Pigeons and a crazy clock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Plaza Murillo is a great place to enjoy beautiful colonial government buildings and cathedral and to people watch. It's great fun feeding the pigeons. Best of all is the huge clock on the main government building. The president recently had it changed to run counter clockwise. All of the numbers are backwards now. Crazy!!

“Definitely worth a stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This is my favorite plaza in La Paz...colorful buildings all around, tons of locals feeding birds and sitting on park benches, etc. What a great place to experience La Paz's awesome culture!

“ok plazza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

As plazzas go in south America I found this place very average. To me it simply did not have it.
a bit scruffy in places and an overwhelming amount of pigeons

“Nice, Simple and small”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Lots of locals, great photo opps, nothing outstanding form an architectural, or size point of view. Lots of pigeons and food options if you dare.
