The city of La Paz is the see of Bolivian Government; situated at 3.600 m (11.811 feet) over sea level, surrounded by mountains, this city is a "patchwork" with native, Spaniard and half-caste elements. Baroque churchs, modern buildings, colorful clothes, open markets, cholitas loading their children at their backs, chaotic traffic, few oxygen, thousands of pigeons... give La Paz a very special charm.

La ciudad de La Paz es la sede del Gobierno boliviano; situada a 3.600 m sobre el nivel del mar, rodeada de montañas, esta ciudad es una mixtura de elementos indígenas, españoles y mestizos. Iglesias barrocas, edificios modernos, ropas coloridas, mercados callejeros, cholitas cargando a sus hijos en sus espaldas, tránsito caótico, poco oxígeno, miles de palomas... dan a La Paz un encanto muy especial.
