The people of Bolivia love a festival and thanks to the country’s vibrant cultural diversity, historic legacy and rich indigenous culture, there are plenty of opportunities for organising parades and processions. Many of these cultural celebrations are globally recognised, with the Oruro Carnival inscribed by UNESCO as a ‘Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity’ for the 18 specialties of traditional dance performed as part of the festivities. Ancient traditions honouring various gods are also abundant throughout the country, for example alasitas (miniatures) are sold
in Bolivian markets during January as a celebration for Ekeko, God of abundance and happiness within the home. Soak up modern culture in the bustling city of La Paz, set at a dizzying height of 11,975ft above sea level and claiming the title of the world’s highest capital city. Explore its maze of high rises which provide a stark contrast to the adobe houses and sprawling markets nearby. Bolivia cultural holidays can encompass the nation’s continued customs and so much more.
