    hi there,

    Potosi is replete with colonial era treasures, which include domes, columns, and sculpted gates that decorate important buildings such as churches.

    Two of the best places to marvel at Potosi's great architecture and history are:

    - the Museo de la Casa de la Moneda or House Coin Museum, which will give you a glimpse into what life might have been like in the old days.

    - the San Benito church, which is from the 18th century and has beautiful Byzantine like domes.

    Also, while there don't forget a visit to the Sumaj Orcko silver mines.
