#24 of 147 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.

  • None of the 4 small museums facing onto Calle Jaen is a must, but if you have time you can dedicate an hour or so. For a combined ticket, affordable inputs 4 you pay at the Museo Costumbrista.

  • I stayed in a hostel on this street so it was a short hop to 4 small museums that this area is known for. Note the lovely cobblestone/rock detail on this little winding lane.  more »
  • Worth exploring the area, many museums and galleries. Nice artisan types of shop but beware they are closed on Sat afternoon and Sunday. There some interesting colonial architecture.  more »
