Slow things down in the shady plazas of colonial Sucre
Sucre is Bolivia's constitutional capital and its most beautiful city. The small and elegant UNESCO heritage centre boasts shady plazas, quiet parks, magnificent museums and historic colonial buildings with perfect whitewashed façades. The laid-back and cosy feel of the city makes it the perfect place to pull up a seat at a cafe and watch the world go by on the cobbled streets, particularly after the chaotic streets of La Paz or the dizzying altitudes of Uyuni. It is also perfect for those with a sweet-tooth, with Sucre famed for its chocolate shops and ice creams.
Reached via wonderful day trips from Sucre are the vibrant Sunday market of Tarabuco and the poignant Cerro Rico silver mine of Potosi. Just outside the city is a collection of dinosaur footprints leading up a 70 degree 300 foot limsetone wall at Cal Orko.
