The Palacio Quemado, La Paz
The Palacio Quemado is a popular name to denote the Bolivianmarker Palace of Government, located on Plaza Murillo in downtown La Pazmarker. It is the building from which the Bolivian executive (as represented by the President and his entourage of aides) conducts its business.

The building has had many incarnations. Its nickname ("Palacio Quemado," or "Burned Palace") originates from the fact that it was set aflame and burned almost to the ground during an uprising in the 1860s. It has since been rebuilt and revamped a number of times, but the name stuck. The Palacio Quemado is located next to the Cathedral of La Paz, and right across the Legislative Palace, where the Bolivian Congress operates.
