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.

  • This narrow street of stone paving is the most charming of La Paz. Walking through it is like going back to colonial times. Has a few museums, to complete the journey in time. It is common to see couples of newlyweds taking pictures at the scene.

  • Honestly, we did not like La Paz, but this little street is nice. Cobblestoned and colonial style, it is peaceful and beautiful. Probably overrated in the brochures, but nice to spend a relaxing walk ...  more »
