Sucre is a living expression of colonial times. The Cathedral, churches and cloisters, the second oldest University in South America, San Francisco Xavier, as well as the University Museum offers fine examples of anthropological remains. On Sundays one can visit the Tarabuco Market, full of colour, antique weavings and traditions, admiring the traditional costumes, which preserve their identity, as well as antique weavings displayed all over.
The historical city of Bolivia; It is said that "Cerro Rico", -in the hub of the city-, produced so much silver during the Colony, enough to could have build a solid silver bridge from Potosi to Madrid.
