Jaen Street, La Paz
(4.2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Stroll down Jaen Street, a well-preserved colonial-era alley offering architectural highlights and cultural attractions. The brightly colored buildings of this narrow street date back to the 18th century, and their colorful plaster has been well maintained over the years, giving plenty of character and atmosphere to this charming, pedestrianized thoroughfare. Something of a hub for the town's bohemians, the area boasts many cafes, bars, and museums, all within walking distance of one another. Jaen Street is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, La Paz Edition.

  • Great place! There are six museums in one place and great pics can be taken here. You can hear about some good stories here. 
  • Is the street with the historic environment-best preserved colonial in La Paz. There are several small museums like the folklore and the Bolivian coastline.

  • Small cute street, quiet with nice colors. Some handicraft shops with local treasures.
  • Very nice street, typical and with an interesting legend. A MUST see in La Paz
  • Nice little street with small stones embedded into the roads and the buildings still in great condition. Not a must do if your time is limited. Lots of History in this street.
  • One of the few nice spots left colonial
  • Very colourful street with four museums
