Nice little street.

This is a nice little street, there is a 3 or 4 museum. Little shop. It's very quiet. There is a park not to far to relax

Very interesting this neighbourhood. Many buildings from colonial times recpvered and in very good state of conservation. There are many handicraft shops with amazing items.

There are many streets in La Paz and this is one of them. It is nice and if you are going down it, enjoy, but don't cross town just to come here.

We stayed on a hostel on this street and I would highly recommend it. There were lots of really cute eateries but I didn't visit the museums.

Not as colourful or cool as I was expecting. There are quite a few museums but they didn't excite us too much. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to go there, but it's not like you'd be too disappointed going there

Many of the museums are on this street. The lane itself is quaint, peaceful, and a great stroll from shop to shop (arts and crafts, arts galleries, craftman's Shops etc.)

Cute little street with a hostel and some tour agencies and museums. Not necessarily a tourist attraction in itself, but nice if you want to see the museum of musical instruents

Its just a street to walk up, that has been kept in its original condition but will give you an idea of the architecture of centuries gone by.

Visiting the Jaen Street museums was a delight. The system is well organized: one ticket allows a visit to several of the museums. Some, but not all of the museums had information in other than Spanish.

as the other reviewers say, it is a cute but very short street. It only has a handful of shops and a couple of nice coffee shops but other than that it is just a street. my advice is pop along if you are nearby but don't go out of your way to find it

Thank roamingjode
