Beautiful street

Beautiful street with nice museums. The architecture is a lot nicer than in the rest of La Paz and it's close to the center.

A small street locates one block away from the municipal theater where you can experience colonial La Paz. Museums and galleries are open in the daytime, while cafes and pubs come alive at night. Many places also feature live music/entertainment on the weekends and will usually have a staff member who can translate available. Definitely recommended

Jaén Street offers a look at old La Paz that does not exist any more. A narrow street with well preserved old houses that have become museums and coffee shops. A pleasant stroll either with a group or on your own

This is one of the few streets in La Paz that have maintained their colonial touch. The street is narrow, with balconies from different houses facing one another. They are almost close enough for neighbours to shake hands or share apples (by tossing them over, of course). The best thing about this street is that it is a pedestrians only... More

The street is quite short but you can wander into the art galleries and there are shops and restaurants nearby. It's well preserved and photogenic. You'll see some tour groups being led down here but it is also used by the locals.

Honestly, we did not like La Paz, but this little street is nice. Cobblestoned and colonial style, it is peaceful and beautiful. Probably overrated in the brochures, but nice to spend a relaxing walk through.

It is included in every travel book or on many city maps. But this street is under average and has not much to offer, a bit boring.
