The highest capital city in the world, La Paz in Bolivia is located at a height of more than 3,500 m above sea level. Surrounded by the towering Andean peaks, the city's mountain landscapes, along with its vibrant culture and vast natural landscapes, draw travellers from all around the world.
La Paz has activities for all types of travellers. Lovers of religious history can stop at San Francisco Basilica, an 18th-century religious site located in the heart of the city. Those interested in the Aymara culture can visit the Witches' Market, or Mercado de las Brujas. A stop at the shops of this market will acquaint you with the local healers, who’ll tell you about traditional rituals while showing various amulets, medicinal plants and potions. If you wish to experience La Paz in a different fashion, you can hop on the Mi Teleferico cable car system. With over 25 stations, such as Irpavi Teleférico Station or the Buenos Aires Teleferico Station, you'll be able to travel to and from the city while enjoying stunning views of the mountains. Another attraction to visit is the brightly-painted neighbourhood of Caralluma.
Since La Paz is surrounded by the Andes Mountain Range, an easy way to travel to this city is by plane. One of the hightest international airports in the world, El Alto International Airport is situated atop a cliff and is an attraction in itself.
