45 km south of La Paz is E l Triunfo, it was known at the end of the 19th century for its gold and silver mines which brought prosperity to the town and promoted the development of towns throughout the southern region of the peninsula. In 1912 the main mining company stopped working and the town was abandoned after being the most populated place in the state in its most prosperous time.
Today it has only 400 inhabitants however its buildings, church and cemeteries are still part of the daily life of the town and receive tourists every year to tell their story. We will also be able to discover its huge chimneys that are still part of the tourist attraction, we will be able to observe one 47 meters high and which was designed by Gustave Eiffel.
