Jaen Street, La Paz

(340+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Probably the most (and only?) scenic area in downtown La Paz.
  • I really liked this cute street. Nice colours
  • 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.
