Jaen Street, La Paz

Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • A narrow street with colonial buildings, which is possibly the most beautiful Street in the city. Full of museums.

  • Nice cobble stone street lined with colourful colonial buildings housing nice shops. Very much worth walking through. 
  • It's a nice, narrow, cobble stone little street where time seems to have stopped sometime ago. Nothing spectacular, just a taste of the past and worthy of a little stroll ... 
  • 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
