The Plaza Murillo is the central plaza of La Paz and center of the political life of Bolivia. Buildings on the plaza are Presidential Palace, National Congress of Bolivia, and the Cathedral of La Paz.

A great place to check out some beautiful colonial architecture in a bustling square. There's not much to "do" here, per se, but it's a great stop on a stroll that takes you to Plaza Mayor, the Witches Market, and some great artisan shops on Sagarnaga.

La Paz's main plaza. Pretty colonial architecture. It is a pleasant place to stroll around for a bit, and an easy reference point to meet up with friends

Probably the most impressive plaza in the city, and filled with history. I have seen the presidential motorcade pul-up there more than once, and be sure to check-out the bullet holes still present in the place and police headquarters from when the police fought the army.
