Potosi City Tour

Bolivia, Sucre & Potosi

Potosi is a famous Colonial City and source of silver during colonial times. The rich mountain, Cerro Rico, also called by the locals “the mountain which eats men” towers over the city and according to legend it has produced enough silver to build a solid silver bridge from Potosi to Madrid. During the 16th century its numerous and profitable mines made it the second largest city in the Americas after Mexico City, and primary sponsor to the Spanish Monarchy.

Visit the Santa Teresa Convent and The Casa de la Moneda (Royal Mint), with its wooden machinery used to make the silver coins for Spain during the colony. Potosi was declared by UNESCO “The Historical and Cultural Legacy of Mankind".
