Alcantarí International Airport is an airport that serves Sucre, Bolivia, the nation’s constitutional capital city. It is located 30 kilometres to the south of Sucre City.
Sucre is the constitutional capitalof Bolivia, the capital of the Chuquisaca Department (Province), and the 6th most populated city in Bolivia. Located in the south-central part of the country, Sucre lies at an elevation of 2,810 meters. This relative high altitude gives the city a cool temperate climate year-round and much thinner air. It has a population of 260,000 in the 2012.
Sucre honors the great marshal of the Battle of Ayacucho (December 9, 1824), Don Antonio José de Sucre.
The Metropolitan Cathedral of Sucre is the seat of the Roman Catholic Church in Bolivia. It was built between 1559 and 1712.
The church has a mix of architectural features of the Renaissance and Baroque styles.
One of the best buildings of republican architecture, this was completed in 1896. It was the first Palace of Government of Bolivia but when the government was moved to La Paz it became the Chuquisaca Governorship Palace.
Built in 1621, it is perhaps the most important building of the nation. The republic was founded in this building by Simón Bolívar who wrote the Bolivian Constitution.
Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar (Simon Jose Antonio of the Holy Trinity Bolivar, also called The Liberator, 1783 – 1830), was a Venezuelan military and political leader who played a leading role in the establishment of Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Panama as sovereign states, independent from Spanish rule.
