Bolivia’s capital, Sucre, is also known as “La Ciudad de Cuatro Nombres” (the City of Four Names). It was originally called Charcas by the indigenous inhabitants, and was re-christened La Plata by the Spanish. In the 18th century, the Spanish changed it to Chuquisaca to avoid confusion with the newly created viceroyalty of Río de La Plata in Buenos Aires. In 1825, 16 years after Bolivia gained independence, it was once again renamed, this time after revolutionary hero General Juan Antonio de Sucre.
