Located in the Andean highlands, Sucre is the beautiful, colonial, and judicial capital of Bolivia,. The city is known as the "White City of the Americas" due to its numerous white colonial buildings topped with shiny red tile roofs. Set in a valley surrounded by low mountains, the small city has about 200,000 inhabitants and is very easy to explore on foot. In 1987, UNESCO designated Sucre as a “World Cultural Heritage Site”. The city has a university and is known as the center of learning and progressive thinking within Bolivia. Sucre has many museums, a lively central plaza, shops, and restaurants. The city has a youthful, energetic feel despite its old-fashioned appearance given by its numerous ancient mansions and colonial churches. This charming, colonial city and its nearby villages have a significant indigenous population that has maintained their customs and colorful apparel. Locals and visitors are attracted to the markets where food, textiles, and other products are sold in barter fashion. Potosi, a nearby town from seventeenth century has world famous silver mines that have attracted the largest and richest population in Latin America. It is an integral part of Bolivian history. Due to its beauty and many sites of interest, the city attracts thousands of tourists each year. Its well-conserved downtown area with buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries is one of the many features they are attracted to.
