Mercado de Hechicería

witches marketLa Paz is a city of markets and one of the most unusual is the Mercado de Hechicería, or Witches Market located along the main tourist drag of Calle Sagárnaga.  Here numerous street stalls display an array of herbs and magic potions alongside shriveled llama fetuses which local people bury under the porches of  their new homes for luck and good fortune.
