My next stop was Sucre, the constitutional capital. Lonely Planet promises that Sucre will be Bolivia’s most pleasant city and the visitor will want to stay there much longer than initially foreseen. That prediction turned out perfectly accurate! Sucre is full of students, calmness and sun, and it was indeed very pleasant to spend a couple of days there.

The view of San Felipe de Neri convent. It is still used as a school. The visitors enter via the main school entrance and can see the still-functioning classrooms inside the historical building.

From another point:

One more view over Sucre from the roof of San Felipe de Neri:

Inside the barocco Cathedral. It is generally closed six out of seven days of the week, but can be visited via the backdoor during the tour of the Museum of Sacral Art.

Historical building of the prefecture:

Salteñas – wonderfully tasty concoctions sold all around Bolivia. I discovered them in Sucre. They are full of chicken or meat broth and are served with a small spoon to make it easy to eat it.

Finally the view from the plane that took me from La Paz to Sucre. The Altiplano looks quite magnificent from this altitude.

  1. Kafei The first a month and a bit I was in South America, I was on high altitude. It was windy and cold. Didn’t exepct that kind of weather at all travelling to South America! It will warm up as you head East. Alpaca sweater is so comfy and warm.
