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.

There are places like this in every Latin American and Spanish city, but where better to absorb the local scene and relax in Sucre?

It´s nice to come here at night and see all the sculptures and water fountains nicely lit up. It is super safe here at night too which makes it even better. Great gardening and the place is kept extra neat and tidy.

Some great gardening to see, lots of food vendors and restaurants around. A good mix of Bolivians and foreigners to interact with.

This plaza is great, it has loads of fresh orange squeezer's, show shine boys, and great restaurants nearby. We really liked that there were families sitting out until very late with a busy yet friendly atmosphere.

You will inevitably pass through here at some point during your time in Sucre. It is worth taking a seat and taking a break whilst people watching.
