Potosi Tours

A tour of Potosi will captivate any visitor with its unique façade, geographic setting, and rich history. High in the solitude of the Andes lies the remarkable Bolivian city of Potosi. Its fame came during the 16th century when the discovery of the largest silver lodes in the world captured the Spaniards’ attention. The city, constructed in a hybrid Baroque-Indigenous style, has conserved the entire silver production chain from the mining process, reservoirs, dams, aqueducts, and kilns. Combine a tour of Potosi with one to the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia. It’s easier than ever to travel between these locales with a paved highway that cuts travel time down to 2.5 hours. After exploring the salt flats, you could also check out the Atacama Desert in Chile, or continue north to La Paz. Contact us if you are interested in visiting Potosi on your Bolivia tour, and we can arrange a custom tour of the silver mine itself.
