My girlfriend visited La Paz 5 years ago and was really disappointed with the Witches market this time round. They offer a huge variety of tourist aimed souvenirs at next to nothing prices which is obviously good. However, it’s more just market than ‘Witches’ market...More

Many friends brujas, shopkeeepers and marketeers with time and patience to explain the origins and uses of their wares. A lot of tourist trinkets but also plenty of authentic traditional items. If you have space in your backpack be sure to pick up one of...More

Besides the "interesting" llama foetuses, most of the stalls sell the same stuff. Interesting for a walk, but too orientated to the occasional tourist to meet my personal taste.
