We walked around for a while to find the witches market and realised we'd been walking through it the whole time. There's not much to see, just a couple of stores on a street. Couldn't say it was much different to a usual souvenir market....More
A visual overload as you try to understand what your eyes are seeing. This is most amazing. Talk to the vendors and have them explain what is this all used for. Explore the side streets and the local street food vendors. Whow !!
If you looking for Alpaca jumper, socks or scarf or anything else traditional it is touristy indeed, but still a must and lovely just to indulge into the vibrant colours, to watch the Cholitas, to find some personal treasure or something to bring home.
We visited the witches market with a local guide and we learned about the fascinating history of this place. Without a guide I don't know how interesting it would be as a lot of the quirks and oddities require some explanation (llama fetuses, shamans etc)
people say its a touristic point but like everything in bolivia its just a way to make you go there and spend some money.
theres nothing usefull to buy in this street except for the clothing.
waste of time and money
This is an interesting market. When we visited many of the stalls were closed but the flower stalls were all open. They smelt gorgeous and looked beautiful. I particularly liked the slopes between levels which made access easy.
Great place to walk around for a few hours, enjoy the up and down hills, get some local souvenirs, and eat some snacks/drink some juices.
People on the shops are so nice, friendly, and welcoming. We found more varieties of locally made souvenirs, alpaca sweaters,...More
If you're interested in buying nice trilobite fossils in the Witches Market do not buy straight away from the shops since there are independent sellers with much lower prices in the streets around the market. Some charge 50% less than the shops... However make sure...More
