As the administrative capital and home of the country’s most important government ministries, La Paz has a number of impressive buildings that are worthy of a visit. From colonial era churches and bus stations to government palaces and apartment blocks, let’s take a look at the most impressive buildings La Paz has to offer.
Not really interesting for the architecture itself, Wiphala is a standard block-shaped apartment complex situated in the depressingly poor outskirts of El Alto. What makes the complex so special are the massive murals adorning each side that were commissioned by the famous Aymara artist Mamani Mamani with funding from the federal government. With vibrant, happy colors depicting mystical indigenous symbolism, it really is a sight to behold in this otherwise sparse, depressing region.
