In it you will be able to see colonial passages of enormous architectural value, various monuments and temples, a site of dinosaur footprints and a beautiful traditional textile market.
With an architectural system that bares its living history, the Villa Imperial de Potosí still has vestiges of what was one of the most populated cities in the world during part of the 16th century. You will know where and how the first currency for world use was made, the history of its hill full of silver, its beautiful streets, houses, squares, monasteries and churches; and you will be able to enter a huge mine to learn how they work, excellent are their customs, rituals and beliefs, and to deeply understand the history of Potosi told by their own workers.
