As I stated in a prior post, I lived in Sucre for somewhere around a month. There was so much to share, that I had to break it up. This post will be dedicated to the balance of images and thoughts of the city that made me feel at home.
Simon Bolivar Park
Aside from being the place where I ran and having my favorite fountain, Simon Bolivar park also had an Eiffel tower. Here’s the really weird part about it. It really is an Eiffel. Gustave Eiffel designed this tower as well. It is not a replica of the Eiffel tower in France however. As you can see one can climb this tower which the children love. It is located right smack in the middle of the park.
Plaza de Armas
Plaza de armas was well taken care of. It had these enormous palms, manicured vegetation, a bunch of benches, and a statue of Antonio Jose de Sucre. I would pass it daily on my way to my favorite restaurants.
San Felipe Neri Church
I met Julia on the Parque Cretacico tour and afterwards we took the bus back together, had some food, and I accompanied her to the San Felipe Neri Church. This is something I likely would have skipped had it not been for her. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The courtyard, roof, and various sections of the structure were quite enchanting. It was an enormous site. Also, since it was closing time we also got to see a pretty sweet sunset.
Other little things in Sucre
On my next post I head up to a warmer location and explore Amboro national park.
