The official capital of Bolivia, with its whitewashed colonial centre a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sucre is the city that all Bolivians say you must visit.

Ornate churches are sprinkled through the narrow streets, tiles with poems hand painted onto them are laid into white walls, wooden balconies bear bright flowers, and the sun usually shines.
