OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN SUCRE

CASA DE LA LIBERTAD

This house, on the main plaza, is where the Declaration of Independence of Bolivia was signed on August 6th, 1825. Portraits of presidents, military decorations, and documents, including the Declaration of Independence, are displayed

THE CATHEDRAL

Construction began in 1551, this is the most complex of the colonial religious buildings with Renaissance, Baroque and “Mestizo Baroque” features. Especially remarkable are the mayor altar and the dome crowned by the cross of Carabuco.
