Sucre, Bolivia’s Constitutional Capital

Bolivia is a very special country in that it has 2 capitals. One is La Paz, the seat of the government in Bolivia, and the other is the constitutional capital, Sucre, where Bolivia declared independence from Peru back in the early 1800’s. On our way back from the Salar de Uyuni, we passed through Sucre for the day. Sucre proudly proclaims itself to be the most beautiful city in Bolivia (true!) and also dubs itself “La Ciudad Blanca” — the white city. And indeed, the city is beautiful and white.

Here we are at the Chuquisaca Governorship in the main square of Sucre.

Then we went towards the Mercado Central — Central Market, but along the way we noticed these pristine white buildings. Sucre was truly a white city.
