Copacabana, is a small town located at 152km. from la paz.
The word of Copacabana comes from Khota = view of the lake. Kahuana = precious stone. So it means "precious stone where you can see the lake".
the altitude of this wonderful historical town is 3840m. It´s the most important place for people that are catolic. It´s the Virgen de Lourdes better know as: La Virgen de Copacabana. She is the most important divinity for the Catolic people in Bolivia. You can see her into the church, which is in front of the main square (2 de febrero).
ADVICE: to have a better view of the town you have to go up the mountain called (calvario).
This is part of the square 2 de febrero, as you can see there are so many souveniers. also, at this point many cars are "challados" blessings, i guess. by the sacerdots of the church.
