cloisters of La Recoleta, San Felipe and Guadalupe,
the House of Liberty, where Simon Bolivar
signed the Declaration of Independence as well
as the University Museum, located in the second

fine examples of anthropology, and colonial and
modern art. A three-hour drive through dry mountain
ranges of the Andes brings you to the world’s
highest city, famous for its immense source of
silver during colonial times.

Today you visit the cathedral, the church of San Francisco, Santa Teresa Convent and the famous Royal
Mint, with its wooden machinery used to make silver
coins for Spain during the colonial time. Drive to Uyuni.
We will cross the villages Chaquilla and Tika Tika and
many spurs of the Andes range, which offer incredible
landscapes where erosion has made up incredible
shapes, before arriving to Uyuni.

Excursion to the Uyuni’s salt desert, visiting ‘Isla Pescado’
a bizarre island surrounded by salt and studded
with 7-meter (20 ft) tall cactus. Finally we will stop at
Colchani, a small village on the shores of the Uyuni salt
