Hotel Museum Cayara, Potosi

In the 16th century it was one of the most ‘industrialised’ places on Earth, fabled as a legendary silver town. Today it is a beautiful and fascinating World Heritage site and also the highest city in the world!

If you really want to glimpse the true nature of Bolivia’s industrial past – when silver drew adventurers of all types from across the world, make sure a stay at Museum Hotel Cayara just outside of Potosi is part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Bolivia.

You will stay – in homely comfort – in a hotel that’s actually a living museum in its own right. The hotel Museum Cayara lives up to its name by being a perfectly restored 16th century hacienda with a vividly painted traditional, tiled courtyard and, of course, a museum tracing the colonial history of the house and its surroundings.
