I was fortunate enough to be in Sucre just before Christmas and this place was just magical. They had strings of lights like waterfalls across the paths and lovely illuminated angels. The square is lovely anyway but this just made it extra special. It's the hub of Sucre and full of bustle with people relaxing, walking, selling stuff etc and... More

This is the center of the City of Sucre. There are many street vendors, locals and tourists alike. Definitely a must see in the City of Sucre although you would be hard-pressed to avoid it.

It will be complicated any way to not go through the square if you visit Sucre... Most shops, hotels and restaurants are located in the streets around the square. Worthwhile to pick up a hotel close to the square

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the square in the afternoon and it was delicious. We could see a bit how people use and enjoy the square and appreciate the beauty of the place. A perfect place to relax.

Fantastic place to sit down and relax, I liked it very much when Bolivian Students came next to me and practice their English. The builidings in the surroundings are perfect to see from the main square. If your shoes are dirty, make a walk around, and look for Luis, always interesting to speak with him, even when my shoes are... More

The main square of sucre is full of street vendors, children playing, and comfortable benches to relax on or read a book. The heart of town surrounded by the spectacular colonial architecture

Great place to arrange to meet friends. During the nights there are usually youths having dance battles or bands playing in the square. The greenery is surprisingly well taken care of, if a little inaccessible due to the fences. Lots of benches around for chilling and reading a book during the day time. Plenty of events happen in and around... More

This is the centre of the town and it all happens here. The cathedral, the cafes, the Association of Shoe Shiners of Sucre, the friendly zebras who are there to teach pedestrians and motorists how to use zebra crossings! A lovely old tree-filled colonial garden square.
