Travel Guide South America Bolivia Sucre





© All Rights Reserved Gitan Jean

Beautiful Sucre is the constitutional capital of Bolivia. The historic city was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 because of its wonderfully well-preserved colonial centre with many 16th century religious buildings. With a fifth of the number of inhabitants compared to the administrative capital La Paz, Sucre has a very cosy feel to it. Wandering around the cobbled streets at mid-day or reading a newspaper at an abandoned square, you would almost think you're back in the 1920s in this charming city.



Getting There

By Plane

Sucre has no international airport. The national airport Juana Azurduy de Padilla International Airport (IATA: SRE) offers connections to La Paz, Cochabamba, Tarija, Yacuiba and Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

By Train

Although it used to in the past, Sucre is not connected to the Bolivian railroad network any longer.

By Bus

Various daily buses serve Sucre from La Paz and Cochabamba (via Oruro) and Potosí. Buses also go to Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
