LA PAZ

SURROUNDINGS

-El Triunfo: it is a mining town founded during the colonial times, a period in which great amounts of gold and silver were extracted. With the passing of time Italian, English, French, German and Chinese immigrants came to populate these lands with the hope of making a fortune.
The remains of the old town's foundry are some of the attractions you can find in El Triunfo. The main chimney or Ramona, which was designed by the most famous Gustav Eiffel, stands out in here. There is a rosary of centenarian buildings of great value on the way connecting it with San Antonio, a neighbouring town.
El Triunfo is located at 48 kilometres from La Paz and it characterises for its high vantage points, narrow streets and old churches.

-Sanctuary of the Cacti (El Triunfo - La Paz): it is a 50-hectare reserve that seems to be a withered and desolated area at first sight, but appearances can be deceiving, and one can be amazed before the abundance of cacti with flowers and exotic fruits that colour the panorama, especially after the frugal drizzles, if one tours it with opened eyes.
Intense heat during the day, extremely chilling nights and a really meagre pluvial precipitation are the climatic characteristics in this zone of hostile appearance, which encloses an unsuspected natural richness within its fragile ecosystem.
You will find placards inside the sanctuary with information regarding the flora and fauna existing in the place; besides, do not forget that it is forbidden to extract plant and animal species during your visit, along with making fires and littering, amongst a number of measures established to preserve its natural purity.
Follow the highway bound for the Town of El Triunfo, located at 48 kilometres from La Paz, in order to visit this sanctuary.
