La Paz is the capitol of Baja California Sur, which was founded on May 03, 1535 by Hernan Cortez. Its history is the oldest registered for any town in the peninsula of Baja California. It wasn’t easy to come to the beautiful city that it is  now.

The first people  that arrived to these lands didn’t have the idea in mind to settle a town here, despite of that they wanted to make fortune on the pearls that it was said  could de found in these waters. It took about 300 years to flourish a town on this side of the peninsula.
