Calle Sagarnaga, La Paz
(3.9/5 based on 650+ 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Calle Sagarnaga and other La Paz attractions using our handy La Paz itinerary builder.

  • Is the street of La Paz that has the largest concentration of tourists per square meter. In this most hillside buildings PERT are occupied by travel agencies selling tours to several attractions of La Paz and Bolivia. Some exchange houses and souvenir shops are also present.

  • On the central street you can find all kinds of local crafts and buy all the souvenirs that you fancied yourself. If you spend your last evening in La Paz beware Bolivians to spend and go prepared to haggle. The street is so steep to almost 4000masl have to take it easy.

  • Here you think of everything. Many good restaurants, others less so. Numerous travel agencies to close the tours of La Paz. The other streets around tb are full of things of the same type, including shops for clothes pro cold. Valley swing with ctz.
