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.

  • The Presidential Palace of Bolivia is located in the square in the Centre of Murilo La Paz, popularly known as Burnt Palace (was torched in an uprising in the 19th century). Is next to the Cathedral. He is not open to the public, but sometimes if you can get to an internal courtyard. The guards who protect wear red uniforms, in honor of the soldiers of the War of the Pacific against Chile. It has three floors, and is perhaps the most photographed building in the capital.
