Coming out of a restaurant for lunch, we heard military music... we walked towards it and arrived on Plaza Murillo where all the different Bolivian army corps where getting ready for the "Dia del mar" parade... even the President was there... an unbelievable experience without preparation. Plaza Murillo is where events start or finish and it is very close to... More

A typical Plaza of a big Latin American City, full of people with even more pigeons that are fed by children

Such a beautiful square and feeding the doves is hilarious. There are tons of locals also having fun with the birds which is really funny to watch!

Despite being the administrative center of the city, with the casidra and palast, life goes quite smoothly in the plaza self. Sometime are protests (more frequent now) but they do not reach the plaza. The scenic beauty of the place is high. Many Bolivians come with their families to take a look of the place. Intriguing is the clock over... More

Really enjoyed sitting in Murillo. It is shaded and leafy with elegant Cathedral flanking it. Lots of local families relaxing here taking time out from the crazy city streets. Some nice food vendors selling fruit, nuts and cold drinks, I think we ended up here pretty much every day during our stay. Lovely spot, our favourite in La Paz I... More

It is a nice Square commemorating the Revolutionary Leader Pedro Murillo who lost his life in the struggle for independence from Spain. The Square is surrounded by the National Congress and the Government Palace. The pigeons population there seems to explode and should benefit from some form of management

This plaza is right outside key government offices including the presidencial palace, ministry of foreign affairs and other offices in the vicinity. It is a key attraction to both locals and tourists. You will often find people with their small children feeding the doves of taking pictures or just on a family hang out. One thing to note though is... More

This is a nice square ringed by government buildings populated by locals enjoying the square and feeding the pigeons. Look at the clock in the yellow building! I won't spoil your discovery by describing it. The reasons for it are varied: from an election attention getter, to a statement of independence, as in, we do it differently in the southern... More
