UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Attractions & Activities In Sucre
Common consensus suggests that Sucre is Bolivia’s most beautiful city, and it’s hard to argue otherwise. The city was originally founded by the Spanish in the early 16th century. The handsomest part of town is the UNESCO-listed historic quarter, where it appears that little has changed in the last century or so. The historic core is laid out in the typical grid style used by the Spanish for most of their urban settlements. Within it is a collection of well-kept and impeccably-preserved old buildings, which harmoniously blend elements of both European and indigenous design. The bright white-washed houses are fitted with neat red-tiled roofs, while the gorgeous town plazas are lined with orderly palms.
During a private tour of Sucre, you’ll get to explore its architectural treasures, among them a handful or so of the city’s achingly pretty churches including San Francisco, San Lázaro, Santo Domingo and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Also of note here is the Casa de la Libertad, the perfect spot to brush up on your Bolivian history. The 17th-century building is where the Bolivian Declaration of Independence was signed in 1825 and hence, Bolivia’s most significant monument.
The best way to appreciate the rich history and architectural gems of this delightful city is to tour it with your very own private guide, who can bring the story of Sucre to life.
