Ticked it as a 4* as the ratings didn't have any in-betweens.

Interesting historical street in La Paz. It's not very long but it's rather quaint.

What was mentioned to be a 12-15 minute walk by our hotel front desk ended up a 25 minute walk (one way) as it was mostly uphill to get here from our hotel.

But the journey here and back was very pleasant as we returned along a different route (longer) at the other end of Calle Jaen.

In my opinion it was well worth the walk, both directions.

There are four small museums housed in adjacent colonial era homes that have different exhibits. Cost is about$3 for all four. One is a costume museum, another precious metals, a third has old maps and the last is the home of 1809 revolutionary Pedro Murillo. Well worth a visit. Whole street is like going back in time on cobble stones. Very friendly staff with guided tours available. Closes at 12:30 for lunch.

Quaint little street above the city center. There are five museums located along the street, along with a few shops and cafes. The problem with it is that the four city-run museums keep odd and very short hours - generally opening for just a couple of hours in the morning and then again in the mid-afternoon, and some days they simply just don't open their posted hours. The winning spot, however, is the musical instruments museum and theater, which is privately run and pretty much open all day, most days.

Unless you are heading to one of the museums on the street there's no point going. Cafes are small darks dn overpriced.

Nice streets and would recommend going during the day (nighttime can get a bit dodgy leaving the area). But great spot to take photos

Such a contrast to most of central LaPaz, this beautiful street seems to invite you to wander down it's length and explore. Lot's of little nooks and great spots for photos. Cool cafes too for stopping a while and taking int he scene.

If you're in La Paz, it is certainly worth visiting Jaen Street, a well preserved and good looking relic of La Paz's colonial past. It is quite narrow and very quaint.

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

Jean Street was close to my hotel (El President - Avoid). It's a nice walk up there. The street itself is quaint but I really would not go out of my way to see it.

To be honest this street is a bit overrated I think. We took a photo but outside of that its just a street with a bit of colour. If you really appreciate things like this I'd suggest valparaiso in chile.

As for the musuems we specifically wanted to visit them but we had to provide a passport or photo identification to get in so we missed out on every musuem. What an absolute joke. The receptionist was not helpful whatsoever and basically disinterested. So if you want to visit the musuem you have to carry id with you (in an apparently pickpocket prone city) where they had a security guard posted at the musuem anyway so no doubt nothings going to get stolen. Totally missed opporunity for tourists to become more educated about bolivia's history.
