Bolivia – Sucre

Sucre, the first capital of Bolivia, was founded by the Spanish in the first half of the 16th century. It’s a beautiful town, with lots of original Spanish colonial buildings still in tact and a welcome relief from the altitude and craziness of La Paz!

Just walking through the town is a lovely experience but the cemetery is worth a visit and it’s always culturally interesting to visit such places when travelling.

The cemetery has some headstones but most of the tombs are set into the walls.

Each little window contains trinkets and photos of the deceased, some with a awning to shade from the sun.
