Visit Potosi, Bolivia
Three hours by road from Sucre, melancholy Potosi was once Latin America’s richest city.
Today it is a shadow of its former self and grand colonial houses stand crumbling, but the skyline is still dominated by the Cerro Rico (Rich Hill), whose silver brought great wealth for the Spanish at the cost of countless slave miners’ lives.
