Potosi & Sucre – Potosi & Chuquisaca Regions
The Historic City of Sucre, located in central-south Bolivia, was the first capital of Bolivia. Its many well-preserved 16th-century religious buildings illustrate the blending of local architectural traditions with styles imported from Europe (UNESCO).
The City of Potosí was the world’s largest industrial complex for its modern extraction of silver ore in the 16th century. It was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the Americas until its mines were depleted. Today, Potosí is worth visiting for its beautiful churches, many decorated in silver, and its ornate colonial architecture.
