La Paz Bolivia La Paz travel Bolivia tours Bolivia information about trips hotels and Amazon lodges in Bolivia La Paz:


Times of bloody battles in the stony lands of the Andes. Evil winds of desolation descended of the snowy picks of the mountain range. War and fright, blood and death, because in the lands, stolen to the mythical sons of the Sun, the Spanish conquerors brandished the sword and loaded the guns to support their desires of wealth and to kill the ambition of their own blood brothers.

La Paz, Bolivia

When the clamors of the civil war ceased, Don Pedro de la Gasca, ordered, to the captain Alonso de Mendoza, the creation of a city to commemorate the end of the confrontations. The command was completed on October 20th, 1548, when "the discordant ones in agreement, in peace and love, joined, and a town of peace was founded for perpetual memory", as the plate sent seven years later by the King Carlos V reads.

La Paz, Bolivia

La Paz was founded; headquarters of the government of Bolivia and capital of the department of the same name. Since its foundation, the city has known how to harmonize those features of its cultural and architectural inheritance, with discreet flashes of modernity that constitute authentic brushstrokes of the future in the andean height.

Squares invaded by hundreds of hungry doves... peace doves?, markets of crafts in which words in quechua and aymara are whispered, a valley that resembles to the moon surface, streets in perpetual ascent that end in sublime colonial churches... but, it is necessary to walk slowly, to avoid the rigors of the 3,640 m.a.s.l.

La Paz, Bolivia

Days of peace and of an exaggeratedly blue sky in one of the jewels of the Andes that glows due to the protector presence of the Illimani (6,403 meters of altitude), the powerful guardian of the most important city in Bolivia, arisen when the clamors of the civil war ceased among the Spanish conquerors.
