Slow things down in the shady plazas of colonial Sucre
Sucre is Bolivia's constitutional capital and its most beautiful city. The small and elegant UNESCO heritage centre boasts shady plazas, quiet parks, magnificent museums and historic colonial buildings with perfect whitewashed façades. The laid-back and cosy feel of the city makes it the perfect place to pull up a seat at a cafe and watch the world go by on the cobbled streets, particularly after the chaotic streets of La Paz or the dizzying altitudes of Uyuni. It is also perfect for those with a sweet-tooth, with Sucre famed for its chocolate shops and ice creams. Just outside the city is a collection of dinosaur footprints leading up a 70 degree 300 foot limsetone wall at Cal Orko, reached by the brilliantly named Dino Truck.
Sucre - Tarabuco Market
Colourful, crowded and chaotic in equal measure, the Sunday textile open-air market in Tarabuco is always a lively affair and a joy to behold. The indigenous Yampura people are fiercely proud of their heritage and the marketplace is the perfect outlet for them to display it in all its glory. Wearing traditional dress, they exhibit their finest handicrafts - bags, hats, jumpers, ponchos, jewellery and tapestries - primarily to the tourists that descend on the small town on a weekly basis. Despite the numbers and slightly higher prices, a visit to Tarabuco remains one of the best ways to grab an insight into life outside the main cities and bag yourself some traditional garments whilst you are at it.
