The street is quite short but you can wander into the art galleries and there are shops and restaurants nearby. It's well preserved and photogenic. You'll see some tour groups being led down here but it is also used by the locals.

Great place! There are six museums in one place and great pics can be taken here. You can hear about some good stories here.

Honestly, we did not like La Paz, but this little street is nice. Cobblestoned and colonial style, it is peaceful and beautiful. Probably overrated in the brochures, but nice to spend a relaxing walk through.

It is included in every travel book or on many city maps. But this street is under average and has not much to offer, a bit boring.

Different look and feel from the test of La Paz. The tour company for the walking tour is here. They say this place is haunted. There's a green cross on one end of the street to ward off spirits. Apparently this street is known to ghost hunters.

It's a nice, narrow, cobble stone little street where time seems to have stopped sometime ago. Nothing spectacular, just a taste of the past and worthy of a little stroll ...

Quiet small street so worth walking too. It's nice to get out of the major crowds of LaPaz and this was a pleasant place to do that.

This was a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon. Jaen street has lots to do and see with a few museums and cafes along this cobble stone way.
