Calle Sagarnaga, La Paz

4.1
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.

  • I think it's just the name. The Bolivian culture is interesting about their way of worshiping the land.  more »
  • Not store and ask the price, just keep in check ripped off when you want to buy here.

  • As Alpaca Mira is an eerie atmosphere. Praying for one year in the local or otherwise, use magic because it uses custom thank you Mummy and powder to fill, not so. Near the second floor building tourist bus departure area and restaurants are so in to please.
