"PLAZA MURILLO" Plaza Murillo Tip by swesn

Plaza Murillo, La Paz: 16 reviews and 22 photos

Although Plaza Murillo is more 'hidden' than Plaza San Francisco, it is the traditional centre of La Paz.

The huge Cathedral faces it and around the square are a series of charming colonial architecture, including the Palacio Presidencial (Presidential palace) which is also known as Palacio Quemado (burnt palace) and the Congreso Nacional.

The plaza is much prettier than the others and at night, it is a romantic and quiet spot to hang out.

There are some restaurants around the plaza and even a local cinema.

The area to the north of the plaza starts to get a bit steep. At this altitude, any climb is an effort. Do take care.
