paisaje, noun:
landscape; scenery

One of the joys of travelling is seeing different landscapes and scenery. El paisaje wraps up both those ideas in one word. When it’s beautiful it’s scenery:

Se han declarado estar impresionados con la belleza de los paisajes bolivianos.
They said they were impressed by the beauty of the scenery in Bolivia.

In other contexts, it’s a landscape:

el paisaje urbano de Moscú
the urban landscape of Moscow

un pintor de paisajes
a landscape painter
