Closeup view of the Statue of Liberty located in Plaza 10 de Noviembre in Potosi. It is a smaller replica of the one in New York.
Potosi has a double plaza in its center. The Plaza 10 de Noviembre is the main plaza. The Plaza 6 de Agosto is just to the east. The Belen Theater is on the north side of Plaza 6 de Agosto.
Who knows who once prayed here. The church on the side of Cerro Rico is now abandoned and is used to hold up radio towers.
The Neoclassical Cathedral was completed in 1836 and sit majestically on the Plaza 10 de Noviembre. It's impressive interior is worth a visit though opening times seem erratic.
The main square of the city offered some quiet shade to escape the craziness of the city and contains an odd miniature Statue of Liberty from the 1926 independence of Bolivia.
The intricate stonework was begun in the 16th century by master Indian artisans and completed by 1744 as a full fledged church.
This is a museum that tells the history of life in Potosi and shows the old machines to produce the silver money. Very interesting!!
