Plaza 14 of Setember

recommendation by fer

Cochabamba -the City of Eternal Spring- as it is popularly known, is an invitation to walk, enjoy its markets, observe the rich neighborhoods and buildings. For starters, nothing is better than sitting in the Plaza 14 de September, with its excellent arch and vibrant yet peaceful city life. The cathedral was founded there in 1571. Nearby are the churches of Santo Domingo, San Francisco and the convent of Santa Teresa

The daily market of La Cancha is at its largest on Wednesday and Saturday. They say there are about 40,000 stalls. They have everything, including fish even in the middle of the Bolivian highlands. But the most colorful are the arrangement of fruits and vegetables, and handicrafts and textiles (in alpaca, very good quality). Be sure to keep a close eye on your back pockets and backpacks.

Portales Palace

recommendation by fer

Located in a wealthy neighborhood, this building is an ode to eccentricity and insulting wealth. It was originally the property of tin baron and mining entrepreneur Simon I. Patiño, and was built in French Renaissance style, with Carrara marble and impressive stained glass windows. Its gardens, inspired by Versailles in France, are further evidence of excess. If you arrive in Cochabamba after visiting the mines of Potosi, it will impress you even more. Now a cultural center is housed inside.
