Hostel Museum Cayara

Map
Hwy 1, 12 miles west of city center, Potosí, Bolivia , Bolivia

Its rich collection of colonial buildings earned Potosí World Heritage Site status from UNESCO; at 13,000 feet above sea level, it is also one of the world's highest cities. After wandering the cobblestone streets and visiting the city's many churches and silver mines, travelers can catch their breath at Hostel Museum Cayara. Located in rugged red Andean foothills, the estate was built in 1557 and is one of the few in Bolivia of that age that remain intact. Twin iron lamps atop stone pillars frame the massive wooden doorway that leads into the hacienda, where most guest rooms open onto two courtyards; the exception is a newly renovated suite that overlooks the hotel's gardens. Although the rooms are spare, the colonial antiques in the common areas are museum-quality. Getting There Cayara is 12 miles by car from Potosí.
