Located in the heart of the city next to the presidential palace, Palacio del Congreso Nacional serves as the seat of Bolivia's congress. Once a convent and college, today the government building houses both the Senate and House of Representatives.

One of the more interesting features of the building, its numbers are in reverse order of a regular clock.

  • Watch the opposite. Go at night and lit on bright. Because I didn't feel bad, enjoy the night scenery.

  • The Palace is a very beautiful building, located opposite the Plaza Murillo, and in the corner opposite the Presidential Palace. Its Tower has a clock, whose peculiarity is that it turns upside down, and their numbering is also upside down, allowing you to see the time. The reason for this is that if the clocks in the northern hemisphere spin clockwise, in the southern hemisphere should turn to the left. Without a doubt, something you must see in La Paz.
