3.4
#20 of 28 in Sightseeing in La Paz
Government Building Tourist Spot
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. As you gaze at this classic example of colonial architecture, look up at the clock above the main entrance. One of the more interesting features of the building, its numbers are in reverse order of a regular clock. Our La Paz family vacation planner makes visiting Palacio del Congreso Nacional and other La Paz attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
