Cave paintings, dinosaur remains and weavers…

Discovery 3 days Year round private Spanish or English speaking guide
Along the way…

This trip allows you to discover the rich cultural heritage of the capital of “Chuquisaca”.
Sucre “The White City”, Bolivia’s first capital is today a quiet provincial city of unequaled architectural wealth. No tall buildings disturb the harmony of this quaint town. Let the sun-bleached stones, the multi-leveled red roofs and the simple and clear lines of the numerous town’s steeples speak for themselves.
The surrounding areas offer unexpected scenery and treasures such as cave painting, fossilized dinosaur prints and meteorite crater. The weavers of this area are also known for their unique work that you will find at the local market . . .
