  • It's the street of la Paz dedicated only to tourists: travel agencies, distributors and dealer of all kinds. For the charango, that happens in the calle linares, perpendicular a calle sagarnaga. For the leathers on measurement and clothing of all kinds, go 2 blocks later in the calle granero.

  • Along with calle Linares, which intersects it, is the most picturesque part of the city. Full of craft shops, however, has a deadly slope: proceed with caution, whether you go up or you need to get off.
