This beautiful city is a little historic wonder as it dates back to the 16h century, a time when Spanish Conquistadors were thriving with wealth from the nearby mountains of Potosi. It is all still evident in the many beautiful and grand buildings and churches, which have given the city its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
But as much as architecture may be a highlight in Sucre, there are many other reasons that make this town worth visiting. Let's start with food - from local Bolivian dishes to vegetarian delights and exquisite European fine dining restaurants, anything is possible, as long as you stay hungry! Museums are also a big attraction in Sucre and we highly recommend visiting one of the city’s fine museums, which will cover a wide range of themes that go from religious art, gemstones, ethnography, indigenous art to folklore.
Are you a hiker? Sucre also provides wonderful trek options in the surrounding countryside. - Waterfalls and remote indigenous village are included but don't be surprised if you spot a few dinosaur footprints along the way! (Yes, it is possible). You can also explore shops and markets in the city center, as well as the Parque Cretácico where you can learn tons about dinosaurs.
Located in the South-Central part of the country, Sucre is the 6th most populated city in Bolivia and also renowned for being one of South America’s most impressive colonial cities.
Sucre is a beautiful city to visit all year long, but the ideal time would be during the dry season - April to September.
