Sucre: Bolivian Beauty
Serving as the judicial and constitutional capital of Bolivia, Sucre is also widely regarded as Bolivia’s loveliest city.
Founded by the Spanish in 1538, this city developed from mining roots, to become a regional center of religious, legal, and cultural affairs.
Sucre’s heritage is well preserved in the city’s historic center, where whitewashed churches and mansions are arranged in the classic colonial grid pattern.
UNESCO World Heritage Site
UNESCO declared Sucre’s colonial quarter a World Heritage Site in 1991.
Sucre is the birthplace of Bolivian independence; In 1825, Bolivia’s declaration of independence was penned in what is now known as the House of Freedom.
Originally constructed in 1621 as a convent, this elegant edifice now displays said declaration, in addition to numerous other treasures from Bolivia’s independence era.
