Historic City of Sucre

I've been here!

Sucre, the first capital of Bolivia, was founded by the Spanish in the first half of the 16th century. Its many well-preserved 16th-century religious buildings, such as San Lázaro, San Francisco and Santo Domingo, illustrate the blending of local architectural traditions with styles imported from Europe.

Trivia

  • Originally founded by the Spanish in 1538 and was known as Silver Town of New Toledo.
  • The city was renamed in honour of the deceased leader of the fight for Independence, Antonio Jose de Sucre in 1839, when it was declared the first capital of Bolivia.
  • The House of Freedom in this city is considered the most important monument because it was here that the events that led to the independence of Bolivia took place.

Year of Inscription: 1991
