Potosi

Potosí is a city in the highlands of southern Bolivia. Its long mining history is exhibited in Cerro Rico, a mountain and silver mine in operation south of the city. The old mint located in the center of Potosí, the National Mint, houses a museum dedicated to the art and history of Bolivia. Next to the mint, is Plaza 10 de Noviembre, a square lined with ornate colonial buildings, including the cathedral.
