The Witches market is a great place if you are looking for handcrafted goods in La Paz. Easy accessable too.

Having traveled the world, many of these markets look the same. This is enough different to make it interesting. Worth seeing.

Having seen some disappointed reviews online about the market, we weren't sure what to expect. Yes, the vendors are mainly catering to tourists and yes, it is actually a littler smaller than expected. However, if you take the time to explore all the shops, alleyways...More

If you are into witchcraft then this is where you will find all sorts of potions and lotions, idols and offerings including embryos of lamas and other animals ready to offer to the gid of your choice. Incredible example of idolatry in a modern age...More

This was a block from my hotel. I visited it on my first day and didn't think too much of it. I took a picture or two and moved on. Enjoy!!

Just a few touristy businesses, nothing else to see. The history is worth visiting, but not the shops.

Tourist markets where you can get anything from a genuine alpaca jumper to an alpaca foetus for your witch craft. Worth a visit to practice your bargaining skills!

Amazing place. It is a throbbing, heaving mass of energy. It's impossible to put your foot down and take a step without walking on someone's stuff for sale! Incredible stuff for sale too, aphrodisiacs, lama foetuses ( yes really) all sorts of lotions and potions...More

Really a surreal, but fun safe area. Your one stop dead llama shop. The people were friendly enough and traffic, like all of LaPaz is at best dangerous. I did enjoy it
