Beautiful cathedral decorated for Christmas. Open during the day so travelers and locals can come in for a quiet look or prayer.

As I stayed in a hacienda two blocks away, I could hear the church bells each day. It reminded me of the cultural roots of this small ocean centered community. The Cathedral is the epicenter of community life.

This catherdral is one of the oldest in La Paz. It is beautiful and definitely a must see! The jardin across the street is a wonderful place to sit in the shade and watch the world of centro go by!

We were on a bus tour that dropped us off at the Cathedral and Plaza de la Constitucion for 15 minutes (then dumped us in a jewellery store for an hour).Impressive 19th Century mission church. Was able to take a quick look around. I liked the tower clock because it kept alive my streak-of all the tower clocks I've seen... More

The Cathedral was a stop on our walking tour with Red Travel. Our guide Hugo told the story of its architecture and construction. Worth a stop even without the tour

The history here is amazing. Your guide will explain which parts of the cathedral had to be rebuilt due to hurricanes. Its not St Peters Basillica in Vatican City but amazing none the less.

Rather enjoyed the simplicity of this cathedral as it contrasts favourably, in my opinion, with the conspicuous opulence of many. In an attractive setting, near markets, shopping, coffee shops, street vendors.

Just a few blocks off of the Malecon sits the historic Catedral de Nuestra Señora de La Paz. Old structure, was built from 1861-1865. Very nice inside. Catholic church is a quiet place out get out of the heat. Right next to Jardín Velasco, a nice one block park.
