Photo Friday: The Dinos of Sucre

Sucre is a city in Bolivia that has been nicknamed the White City due to its lovely colonial buildings. It’s a great place to start acclimatising to altitude at 2,800m; and the sheer amount of Westernised cafes, hostels and bars have ensured it’s firmly on the tourist route.


The biggest tourist attraction in Sucre is a set of dinosaur tracks in a cliff face not far from the centre.

The city has fully embraced the dino fame, and a random assortment of related Whatnots have popped up around town.


The tracks are the main attraction at Parque Cretácio, which also has life size replicas of the species that made the footprints, and a tiny museum.


The Children’s Playground is completely dinosaur themed, with this huge titanosaurous slide a big draw for kids of all ages.


You can even get dinosaur shaped quinoa chocolate!


The benches outside the football stadium are adorned with cute little dinos. As the benches are back to back, it looks like they are kissing! Awww!


Phones all over the country are housed in random creatures – depending on what the area is known for. Sucre, obviously, has dinosaur phone booths.

Would you like to live in a place surrounded by dinosaurs? What shape would the phone booths in your town take?
