Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana reviews
This church has some of the most amazing artwork I have seen in all of Bolivia. It was definitely the highlight of the experience. I would go back to Copacabana just to look at those painting again. more »
This is a must visit when in town. It is beautifully built and decorated. It is also exceedingly popular with the locals. Lots of driver drive their brand new or newly purchased 2nd hand cars here... more »
Coming from Europe, colonial church’s don’t call my attention so much. But this one has an exquisite architecture, something between a church and a moral. It totally deserves the visit. They were painting when we were there a week ago, so it should be even more beautiful soon.
Great example of colonial architecture. You can feel people's devotion when entering the temple.
