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.

  • National Congress Palace (Palacio del Congreso National) is the seat of the Congress of Bolivia and is located on the Plaza Murillo, diagonally to the Presidential Palace.
