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 illustrate the blending of local architectural traditions with styles imported from Europe. Even today, Sucre retains a cosmopolitan feel, filled with cafes and shops and was my favorite city in Bolivia, a much needed respite after three days of off-roading in the Altiplano.
