One of the most iconic streets within the tourist area of La Paz. Colors on the alpaca woolen sweaters and other original souvenirs. Lots of options for those who love a bit of Culture immersion. #chukutapower

There are many strange things to see in the witches market, it is not hard to find a witch that will sell you a good luck charm for a couple soles.
