Presidential Palace, La Paz

(3.3/5 based on 160+ 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.
