Beaches are the main attraction for most visitors; however La Paz has a few notable sites within the downtown area.

The Malecón

The esplanade on La Paz waterfront stretches for more than 3 miles and it is the perfect place to watch a beautiful sunset. Along the walk, admire the sculptures; stop for a coffee break or for a bite at one of the many restaurants; shop for local crafts or try the best ice cream at La Fuente. On Sundays, there are often free concerts and other cultural events.

Cultural Center (old Palacio Municipal)

Visit the Sala Codex Peninsula, a compilation of text and photographs by local artists about history, environment and culture in the Peninsula.

Catedral de Nuestra Senora de La Paz

On Plaza Constitucion, this church was originally founded as a mission by the Jesuits around 1720; however the building as we know it nowadays was built around 1835.

Museo de Antropología e Historia

The museum has three  permanent exhibit rooms dedicated to the history of Baja, a special exhibition room and a botanical garden of endemic species. Next to the museum is Biblioteca Justo Sierra, an interesting historic building that used to be the city’s jail and is now a public library.
