Jaen Street, La Paz

4.2
#18 of 107 in Things to do in La Paz
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.

  • Al rock Moon rock is a beautiful Street. Having a wide variety of museums, between tours. You should come out and take a photo is great for taking pictures.

  • Had walked through this street and was still looking for it. Narrow street about 150m long. You are at the end of it while still looking for it. Nothing really there.  more »

  • Really pretty street but my God is it crowded. If you're trying to get a nice secluded shot, think again. There isn't actually too much going on down the street but it's worth a visit as it'll make for some good photos.
  • Very nice street so visit. Nice colours!
  • Small but pretty. Deserves a visit
  • Small but nice historical place, you can find small galleries, museums and music venues.
  • Probably the most (and only?) scenic area in downtown La Paz.
