Bolivia // La Paz //

Avenida 16 de Julio and around

In its southern reaches, a kilometre or so south of Plaza San Francisco, the busy, tree-lined Prado becomes Avenida 16 de Julio and passes between the suburb of San Pedro to the east and the more modern neighbourhood of Miraflores further to the west, before coming to an abrupt end at Plaza del Estudiante. Directly south of here lies the middle-class suburb of Sopocachi, the city’s most pleasant residential area and home to many of its higher end restaurants and nightlife spots – the centre is around the parallel avenues 6 de Agosto and 20 de Octubre.
