Sucre, Bolivia, Part II

[nggallery id=171 template=”caption”]

After walking around Sucre for a day, we decided to take some small excursions to the surrounding areas.  We heard about this Castillo de la Glorieta right outside the city and decided to visit there.  This castle is completely built in European style some 200 years ago by a rich Spanish settler.  After Bolivian’s independence from Spain, the family left this palace abandoned.  Only recently renovation had started and it’s gradually turned into a museum.

After visiting the castle we went to La Recoleta district.  This district is famous for its beautiful panoramic sight of Sucre on the top of a hill and its nice houses, many housed expats in Bolivia.  We found a beautiful church on the hill top and a little café on the otherside of the square serving many rich patrons with a view of the city.
