UNESCO World Heritage-listed colonial city of Sucre

The ‘White city of the Americas’, the country’s capital, Bolivia’s richest colonial architectural legacy…however you describe Sucre, it should be on any Bolivian itinerary. A graceful, civilised city with an agreeable climate whose centre has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the blockbuster draws may be the Museum of Indigenous Art, but taking in the rhythm of local life in the Plaza 25 de Mayo is a simple joy. Grab a couple of salteñas, some of the tasty local chocolates, and park on a shaded bench to watch city life unfold at its gentle pace. But pack your sunglasses – the stunning white of the surrounding buildings can literally dazzle in the midday sun.
