    Cerro Rico
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Itinerary After getting picked up from downtown and before reaching the “Cerro Rico” (Rich Hill), make a little stop at the Mining Market, the most attractive in the area. Have some free time to buy some dynamite, alcohol and coca leaves as a present for miners to be visited inside the mine. The mines visited are located at the base of the historical Rich Hill of Potosí. Inside, appreciate the system of miners’ work that has not suffered great changes after so much time of exploitation. Touring the different galleries and interior levels of the mines, visitors can meet some places where the miners built statues that represent to their gods as The Uncle of the Mine (the devil). Visitors also can see the mineral veins that are a group of rocks and chemical formations of minerals, chimneys, apart from having an experiential sharing time with the miners and observing the different work methods that they carry out every day.

Highly recommend for everyone!
Jul 2018 • Couples
One week ago, we went to UYUNI SALT FLATS, the tour was incredible, a very expert guide and the delicious food.
I highly recommend this travel agency because it is one of the few companies that provide English speaking guides and pretty hotels.
