Monticulo Park is a great place to visit while you are in La Paz. There is a beautiful view of Illimani Mountain, one of the tallest ones in Bolivia. There is a legend that says Illimani Mountain wanted to be the strongest and the most beautiful mountain among mountains, so he threw a big stone at Mururata Mountain which broke its top off.
Nearby is Monticulo`s Church. Every Saturday and some Sundays it is a good place to get married because, according to Paceño`s beliefs marriages here will last forever.
Monticulo is also one of the most peaceful places to visit in La Paz. It is a good place for reading, taking a nap or just for relaxing.
Romantic Bolivian couples also enjoy the privacy the park provides them.
Monticulo is located near España Square, at the end of Ecuador Street. It is free to get in, come and enjoy Monticulo.
