Sucre and Potosi - Bolivia

Itinerary

Day 1

First off, you arrive at Sucre and will have the choice of either going to Parque Cretácico [Cretaceous Park] in Cal Orcko to see dinosaur tracks or of touring the city, especially its Colonial sector. You will do some sightseeing of its most important historical monuments, like the Casa de la Libertad [Freedom House], where Bolivia's Declaration of Independence was signed in 1825, the 17th century Metropolitan Cathedral, Bolivar Park, ASUR [Fundación Antropólogos del Surandino (Southern Andes Anthropological Foundation)] that is a museum of Indian Arts and where they display the rich textile legacy of two indigenous peoples: the Jalq'a and the Tarabuco. Last destination of the day is a tour of La Recoleta, a church and museum, a site offering you a fantastic view of the entire city.

Day 2

You will travel by bus to the city of Potosi, a mining town that was originally named Villa Imperial de Potosi [the Imperial City of Potosi]. The city is spread upon the foothills of the legendary Cerro Rico Mountain that did have the largest deposits of silver during the Spanish Colony. You will visit the Casa de la Moneda [National Mint], walk down its Colonial streets, shop at the handicraft market, and visit two lovely churches: San Francisco and San Lorenzo, the latter famous for its Andean-Baroque stone carvings. The last stop is at Santa Teresa Church, which is also a museum.

Day 3

This is a special excursion to the mine, where you will travel through tunnels hundreds of meters deep and witness firsthand the life and working conditions of Bolivian miners. (Personal protection equipment, like hard hats, is provided). Later in the afternoon, you return to Sucre.

Day 4

You will fly back to La Paz or to a different city with departure transfer.
