Sitting at an altitude of almost 12,000 feet, La Paz is the third largest city in Bolivia and its capital in all but name. It is also growing constantly, owing to the steady influx of people from the rural regions, and now has a population of approximately 1 million. This population increase is likewise resulting in a steady growth of the parishes within the city. Close to 80% of the population in Bolivia is Catholic, while at the same time there are far too few priests.
