We are walking through the Commerce Street to the Saint Francis Square.
Before coming to Bolivia, I had heard that the country is needy. Do you think so?
Ismael Montes (1861 – 1933) was a Bolivian general and Politician. He served as the President of Bolivia between 1904 -1909 and once again between 1913 – 1917.
Mercado Lanza is a very large 3-story structure in the center of the historic district of La Paz, steps away from San Francisco church.
The Plaza San Francisco is a major urban plaza in the city of La Paz, and a frequent location for political gatherings and protests. It is located in front of the San Francisco Cathedral (from which it takes its name) and the Lanza Market.
The Iglesia de San Francisco is a Roman Catholic Church in the city of La Paz. The construction of the church was begun in 1549 during the Spanish colonial period and ended in the 18th century.
The baroque design combines Spanish style with indigenous elements. Church patron is St. Francis of Assisi.
After the Iglesia de San Francisco we are walking into the street of Sagarnaga for some shopping.
This bustling street is located just south of Plaza San Francisco. In the 18th Century, the buildings lining Calle Sagarnaga were used by people traveling on foot between Potosi and the Peruvian coast to rest their weary legs.
From the Sagarnaga Street we are walking into a side road called Calle Linares.
The Linares Street is one of the ancient roads of the city of La Paz, located in the district of San Sebastian, also known as the name of Calle de las Brujas (Street of the Witches).
Things like traditional toys, Tools used by witches, Mummies of llama’s fetus, Love potions.
It is time to leave. So long! That was very funny.
