In my opinion this is the best Colonial street in La Paz. It is peatonal and it has a lot of very pretty colourful houses with the added value that national hero Murillo lived there. Good stroll, good cafes, nice place

Beautiful street with nice museums. The architecture is a lot nicer than in the rest of La Paz and it's close to the center.

Jaén Street offers a look at old La Paz that does not exist any more. A narrow street with well preserved old houses that have become museums and coffee shops. A pleasant stroll either with a group or on your own

The street is quite short but you can wander into the art galleries and there are shops and restaurants nearby. It's well preserved and photogenic. You'll see some tour groups being led down here but it is also used by the locals.

Great place! There are six museums in one place and great pics can be taken here. You can hear about some good stories here.

Honestly, we did not like La Paz, but this little street is nice. Cobblestoned and colonial style, it is peaceful and beautiful. Probably overrated in the brochures, but nice to spend a relaxing walk through.
