Sucre, the constitutional capital of Bolivia, is a beautiful city that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its colonial architecture. Founded in 1538, Sucre boasts over 500 years of rich culture and history. This vibrant city is full of colorful buildings and bustling plazas with plenty of places to explore.

One must-see in Sucre is La Recoleta Hill, an area full of historic monuments from the 16th century that overlooks the entire city. From here one can enjoy stunning views on clear days, or walk through lush gardens and admire neoclassical architecture at the local churches. The historical cemetery "Cementerio General" offers an interesting insight into the customs and beliefs of Bolivians past and present.

The Cal Orck'o dinosaur museum is another exciting spot to visit while in Sucre: Here one can learn about Bolivia's prehistory by exploring dinosaur footprints along with fossils from prehistoric animals found around Bolivia such as giant armadillos and giant anteaters! After a day spent learning about ancient creatures make sure to try some tasty Chiquitano-style food at one of many restaurants lining Plaza 25 de Mayo followed by some folk music in Plaza Independencia - this will truly be an unforgettable experience!
