  • The square is surrounded by emblematic buildings and is unique for having an inclination which creates a rare sense to walk it

  • I was lucky to go through Potosí in Christmas time, and the weather that was experienced was very cute! Many people, artists, singers, fairs and food everywhere! I would go! Definitely the most beautiful square of Bolivia!

  • The town's main square, different for being biased, meeting place of the local inhabitants, very beautiful, wooden benches preserved, well kept flower beds and flower, coniferous trees of various species, sources, anyway a beautiful square. Has many shoeshine boys working and interesting, leave their boxes stored in the square itself. Has many dogs, too. We saw a wedding couple taking pictures in the square, looks like it is local custom and, as we were in Holy week, we witnessed a representation of the crucifixion of Christ, by young people in the city. It is opposite the Cathedral and is surrounded by public buildings.

Where to stay in Potosi

Because of protection from overdevelopment by UNESCO, you won't find many high-rise, newly built hotels within Potosi's city limits. Instead, visitors can choose from a good selection of colonial-era buildings housing charming hotels and welcoming guesthouses. Generally speaking, look to the south end of the center for more budget-friendly options, with little guesthouses located on residential side streets. By contrast, the more spacious area surrounding the train station has the majority of the grander hotels, set on impressive boulevards and overlooking central plazas.
