Presidential Palace, La Paz
(3.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
See where the President of Bolivia lives at Presidential Palace, a significant land mark in downtown La Paz. Built in the 19th century, the building exhibits a neo-classical style and features a giant white and gold façade. Atop the building rests the Bolivian coat of arms and a clock tower made of dark grey metal. Guards stand outside the palace dressed in 19th century uniforms and once a day they perform a "changing of the guard ceremony" in front of the main entrance. Across the palace lies the popular Plaza Murillo always packed with locals, tourists, street vendors and lots of pigeons. Make Presidential Palace a centerpiece of your La Paz vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our La Paz vacation builder.

  • Architecture of the square and the Palace are spectacular, make the style that has magic, but do not enter, but it's the magic that our Latin American countries.

  • Very interesting! The tour is very worthwhile because it highlights elements that are exposed in dozens of quarters and build a complex line of reasoning! Otherwise, it would be impossible to live with the wealth of details the Bolivian history.

  • Although not as impressive as other presidential buildings of Latin America, this historic building has a beautiful facade that blends with the historic monuments in the square in front.
