Sucre City Tour – Full Day (private)
As the Colonial “white” city of Sucre has so many temples and old wooden balcony houses, we only visit the most important ones. We will see a lot of them on the way, because we will go walking in the old part of the city. First we pick you up from your hotel and then we visit the following places:
Main Square (Plaza 25 de Mayo). It is located in the center of the city. We walk around the square admiring the outsides of the main buildings such as the Town Hall, the House of Liberty and Prefecture of the department and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Afterwards we go to ASUR.
Indigenous Textile Museum ASUR, where you can see all kind of weavings from different Bolivian cultures. Also you have the opportunity to see skillful weavers demonstrating the techniques to manufacture indigenous textiles. Then we go walking to “La Recoleta”.
La Recoleta, it is a historical place because the city was founded there and it is the highest part of the city so you have a wonderful view of the city. Around 12:30 we have a delicious lunch at the best restaurant in Sucre, called “Florin”. (Not included on the rate) Later in the afternoon at 14:30 we continue visiting the following places:
Castle of La Glorieta (4 Km from the city).
We go by car to the Castle, this mansion is one of the most curious buildings of the republican period which belonged to an aristocratic family.
It is a true collection of the eclectic European architecture.
General Cemetery, we return to the city to visit the cemetery that hosts many important personages and often the university students choose this place to study because of its peaceful areas.
Simon Bolivar Park, another quiet place. It represents a sample of the French influence.
There is a replica of the Eiffel tower and the Arch of triumph. Back to the hotel at 17.30 approx
(The program can be modified according to the client’s interest)
Important: In place of the visit to the castle of la glorieta we can also offer a visit to “the Cretaceous Park” where you can see the museum located within the park, and we have an amazing view toward the wall with more than 5000 dinosaur footprints!!!
