Potosí is located in south-eastern Bolivia at a height of 4090 m above sea level. It is considered as the highest city in the world and is a unique destination with a unique story. Due to its favorable location at the foot of the Cerro Rico (''rich mountain''), during the period of the New Spanish Empire Potosí was supplying an incredible quantity of silver and other minerals to the Spanish Crown, and was location of the Spanish national mint for a long time. Nowadays, the Cerro Rico has lost its original shape and Potosí is one of the poorest cities in Bolivia. Mining is still the main activity although working conditions are extremely harsh and the climate is very rigid. Tourism in the area is still growing and has great potential of becoming a consistent alternative source of income for Potosí.
