The official capital of Bolivia, with its whitewashed colonial center 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.
For an insight into the local indigenous groups and their distinctive weavings, visit the fascinating Ethnographic Textile Museum and follow this with a trip to some of the weaving villages themselves such as Tarabuco and Potolo.
The original inhabitants of the Sucre region have also left a heritage of their own with dinosaur tracks being uncovered nearby.
