La Paz city

The city of contrasts, both topographically and culturally. Topographically, La Paz has an impressive setting and the view is staggering. It lies at the bottom of a huge canyon with triple- peaked snow-covered Illimani Mountain providing a dramatic backdrop. It belongs to the same scenic league as Rio, Cape Town, San Francisco or Hong Kong.

The multicultural and multiethnic contrast is also fascinating. In no other capital of Latin America are there such differences between their inhabitants; from indigenous to westerner Bolivians contrasting from clothing to lifestyle.

On December 2014, La Paz was named one of the “New 7 Wonder cities of the World”.
