The main tourist drag is called Sagarnaga street where tourists come to buy typically Bolivian souvenirs that are sold here in abundance. Especially goods made of wool of llamas, alpacas, vicunas are in great demand. There is a big choice of silver jewelery, the more delicate work is, the more expensive it is.
