Museo de la Coca

recommendation by fer

This excellent museum displays and explains in English and Spanish the history of the coca leaf, sacred in the world view of the Bolivian Andes, its cultural value, its medicinal properties and the political involvement it generates. In the same museum you can buy bags of coca leaves, which come in handy to relieve the discomfort caused by altitude sickness. In the same building there is the Museum of Bolivian Andean Textile Art, with a small collection of traditional costumes.
