The best way to discover the colonial white town is to explore it on foot together with your guide.
Sucre is the capital of Bolivia and is located in the south of the central part of the country, at an altitude of 2,810 m.
It's a very pleasant city with a compact centre.
In Sucre the Supreme Court is located and it is also a student city which makes it quite lively. The white painted colonial buildings in the centre are well preserved. There are museums but also many nice restaurants and bars and you can take Spanish lessons. There are green areas to relax and a terrace at the viewpoint of La Recoleta. Sucre also has a cool and temperate climate all year round.
