WHAT YOU VISIT
Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace
Sitting in the heart of La Paz, this revered landmark was erected in 1865 on the site where the city was founded by Jesuit priests in the 18th century. Outside, the Cathedral's stone exterior features two bell towers and a small angel carved in stone above the front entrance. Inside, you'll find a number of beautiful stained glass windows and a colorful sculpture of the Virgin Mary with infant.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
From the Cathedral's tabernacle, a replica of the dome of the San Pedro Cathedral in Rome, to the inviting sculptures and historical buildings along the Malecon, your camera will be working over-time!

SHOPPING
Pursue your passion for wooden handicrafts, decorative pottery, hand-painted tiles and more as you shop the arts and crafts exposition that line the Malecon.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Enjoy a scenic route along the coast and through quaint villages en route to the city of La Paz.
