  • Although it is one of the main squares of La Paz, it is relatively small, but has several monuments and is surrounded by the most important political and religious buildings in the country. It is a traditional meeting place of families of La Paz, which sits talking, snacking and throwing corn to the dozens of pigeons from site.

  • Technically refers to a main square. It has many flags. In front of it is the Government Palace with his bodyguards typically dresses.

  • Nice little square. When we were there a military band was playing. A vendor sells freshly squeezed orange juice, cheap and delicious. Nice to have a break during the "walk La Paz" tour.
