At an elevation of roughly 3700 m above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city, or more accurate, the highest seat of government, in the world. The city is built in a canyon created by the Choqueyapu River (now mostly built over), which runs northwest to southeast. The city’s downtown core roughly follows the river occupies the flat lower linear area called the Prado. The geography of La Paz reflects society and history: the early-developed lower areas are more affluent and well-accessed, where many middle-class and well-off residents choose to live. And looking up from the center, the surrounding hills are plastered with makeshift brick houses of poor people, the upper the hill, the less accessible and equipped. La Paz means ‘Peace’ in Spanish but there are numerous strikes and riots taken place in the Murillo Plaza in the city centre.
位於3700米的拉巴斯, 是玻利維亞的行政首都, 亦是世界上最高的政府所在地。拉巴斯建在一峽谷之內,整個城市被雪峰所包圍,谷內是已被封蓋的喬克亞普河, 城市由河谷沿山發展, 所以街道比較陡峭, 形成一個睰大的山城, 有約一百萬人居住。城市的中心為建在河上的平坦商業區Prado,是最早發展的地區, 現在聳立著不少的摩天大樓,也保留著一些殖民時期建築。 中產及富有的人通常住在Prado的西南面, 窮人則在四週的山坡上建泥屋,遠看拉巴斯就像鋪滿積木屋的山城 。拉巴斯在西班牙語中即“和平”之意. 但它並不和平, 因全年有很多遊行示威, 都在市中心的穆里略廣場展開, 曾導致過不少次封城停市。 獨立後的100多年裡,拉巴斯見證了玻利維亞190次政變、更換了近70名總統以及侵略戰爭的創傷。
