3.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
The city’s main tourist strip, Calle Sagarnaga caters to the traveling crowd, as it boasts restaurants, souvenir and craft shops, and tour agencies galore. Nicknamed gringo alley, this street has historic roots as the main thoroughfare for visitors. During the colonial period, travelers passing from Potosi and the Peruvian coast often stayed the night along this street. Some of the buildings that now house hotels were originally built as accommodations for these travelers visitors in the eighteenth century. If you’re looking for souvenirs, start here; try haggling for the best price.

  • Very narrow street, but with a wide variety of different stores and full of people. You can meet a lot of the local culture.

  • On this site you will find everything from crafts which is pretty much the local food sold on the street anyway, worth checking out.

  • The street reminds me of Khao San Road in Bangkok with so many tour operators, hostels and souvenir shops selling the same items. Ok to walk, not very great.
