ATTRACTIONS


In La Paz, the capital city of Bolivia, even the simplest and daily facts are queerly wrapped by a special atmosphere. It is for that reason that to feed the pigeons of the Murillo square -the most important in the city-, to walk by El Prado or just to look around among the unlikely knick-knacks of the handmade market of Las Brujas, become unforgettable events for the traveler.


Sensations get intense when traveling by the intricate stone formations of the Moon valley or the fabulous archaeological remains that evidence the greatness of the men of Tiahuanaco, masters of the highland in the pre-incas time.
