Travel Tips for Sucre
The law court (some info)
A constitutional, multiparty democracy with an elected president and bicameral legislature, Bolivia has separate executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, with an attorney general independent of all three. The traditionally strong executive, however, tends to overshadow the Congress, whose role is generally limited to debating and approving legislation initiated by the executive.
Bolivia's nine departments received greater autonomy under the Administrative Decentralization law of 1995, although principal departmental officials are still appointed by the central government. Bolivian cities and towns are governed by elected mayors and councils. The most recent municipal elections took place in December 1999. The Popular Participation Law of April 1994, which distributes a significant portion of national revenues to municipalities for discretionary use, has enabled previously neglected communities to make striking improvements in their facilities and services.

Meet locals by playing table football with pupils
From the square, at the top of Sucre, you have a nice view on the town. But you can also play table football with the pupils of the school which is right on the square. They will be happy if you invite them and they can save some bolivianos. They will be happy to speak with you as well, and you may take some nice picture. A rewarding experience, off the beaten path!
There are some important buildings to visit in Sucre: the University Museum of colonial painting, archaeology and anthropology (the ancient Inquisition Office); the Cathedral; San Francisco's Church; Oratorio San Felipe de Neri; the University.
The picture shows Santa Monica's Church.

Capital of Bolivia
Sucre, the white city of Bolivia (as Arequipa in Peru).
Really beautiful town with great cathedral and other beautiful buildings in colonial style. Besides there is a building constructed by Gustave Eiffel and for this reason as well a little (really little) copy of the tower of Eiffel (it´s for children normally), just next to this old train.
