El Rosario is a picturesque city located in the lush, green hills of Central Bolivia. With an estimated population of around 15,500 people, El Rosario is known for its exuberant culture and its stunning views. Located close to the border with Chile, El Rosario serves as a gateway to both countries.

There are also plenty of options for outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking through the surrounding mountains. For those looking for a bit more adventure, rafting down the nearby Rio Mamore or exploring Tierra Caliente (the hotlands) are popular experiences among visitors.

The main attraction in El Rosario is La Iglesia de Santa Barbara - an old colonial church that was built in 1648 by Spanish settlers who were seeking gold and silver ore in the area. The church has been restored to its original baroque style and is now listed as an official national monument due to its historical importance.
