Barrio Histórico

Norte Grande

British flavor prevails in the 19th-century Barrio Histórico, between the plaza and the old port, where handsome Victorian and Georgian buildings still stand. On Bolívar, the bottle-green-colored train station (1887) is the restored terminus of the Antofagasta–La Paz railway. It's closed to the public but you can see several old engines and British-style telephone boxes through the western railings.
