I love the plazas in Bolivia. They are always well visited and seem like the open space to meet up. Surrounded by great restaurants (25 Bolivianos a dish) and historic buildings.

This is the prettiest plaza we have visited is far in our 9 week tour of the southern cone. It is clean, with pretty plantings and very well maintained cathedral and public buildings. A real pleasure to visit.

A very nice small central square. It's not grandiose like many other Bolivian town's central squares, far from it, but it was clean and welcoming and full of friendly locals. A nice base to explore the city from but not much to it to be fair.

Often things are going on at this old square with a Spanish style cathedral and colonial buildings from times past, surrounding it. Young Bolivians doing an act. Argentinians making music. Though most of the time it is fairly quiet. Strange to sit in the sun in the middle of a city at an altitude of around 4,000m. Cold in the... More

The main square of Potosí is where the Cathedral, the government buildings are located. It also hosts a bronze version of the statue of liberty, in the middle of the plaza. Locals from all walks of life gather here. From the youths practicing street-dancing, to the lovers going out on dates, to the shoe-shine boys. This is where you can... More

The plaza is the heart of the city. There's often concerts, fireworks and other events. It has a lot of statues, benches, and fountains. It's also surrounded by beautiful historic buildings that are lit up at night. Since Potosi is always cold, it's really nice to hang out on a bench in the sun on a nice day.

Nice square surrounded by beautiful buildings and with lots of benches to sit and pass some time. There is a fair amount of traffic though and the car fumes can be a bit overpowering.

Nice plaza we visited with friends. It was Carnaval season so lots of kids peppering each other and tourists (who stand out in the crowd) with water bombs and foam. They love it when you get involved and fight back!
