If you're looking to buy the potions, medical plants and dried frogs you need for your Bolivian rituals, then this is the place for you. Rid yourself of your money worries and love troubles with the help of the colourful and charismatic Bolivian witch doctors of the Mercado de las Brujas. For everyone else, just enjoy the beautiful chaos and bizarre merchandise of what is surely one of the most surreal and strange markets in the world. Just try to ignore the llama fetuses, purchased by Bolivians to place in the foundations of new houses as a sacrifice to the goddess Pachamama, in return for her keeping the workers safe.

The Witches Market is visited on a full or half day tour of La Paz, including tours of some of the cities most resplendent squares and grand churches and the Indian aera where the streets are lined with stalls selling wonderful weavings, traditional musical instruments and jewellery.
