DESCRIPTION

It is time to begin the adventure through Potosí, the Silver City, with its narrow streets and balconies, a classic colonial sight from a time when conquistadors from another continent arrived to be amazed of the amounts of minerals found in these lands. Visit La Casa de la Moneda, an old silver factory now turned into a museum full of machines and history. Walk through the Santa Teresa Cloister, now turned into a museum, takes us to the day to day life of hundreds of years ago. Going forward, we pass by the main cathedral, visiting La Torre de la Compañia de Jesus, a Jesuitical baroque tower, among many other buildings of the era. Before we call it a day, enjoy the San Francisco balcony, a view point from which you can understand this iconic city and specially the Merced Church and of course, the imposing Cerro Rico de Potosí, from which conquistadores were sure they could have built a silver and gold bridge between Bolivia and Spain. After all this, you’ll be ready for a well deserved rest before you continue with your adventure.

PHOTOS
