Sucre is the constitutional capital of Bolivia and is located in the inter-Andean valley of southern Bolivia. The city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its colonial history.
On Day 1 we tour the city and learn about its history by visiting the Casa de la Libertad, La Recoleta Museum, and the La Glorieta Palace, as well as key public plazas and monuments. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the city by yourself.
The following day and after breakfast, we set off for a 156km journey to Potosi, an equally important city in Bolivia’s history. Potosi is one of the world’s highest cities, at an altitude of 4,050m. Once we arrive in Potosi, we begin the city tour through its colonial streets and churches. We can’t miss the Casa de la Moneda or Royal Mint, where hundreds of thousands of silver coins were minted before being transported overland to coastal cities and then shipped to Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. At the end of the day, tired and enriched, we can help you continue on to Uyuni or wherever else you may be headed!
