street arcoss potosi catedral, the cathedral

It is under restoration. Still there is a tour for 15B each. Spanish only. But a Spanish couple from Barcelona is nice enough to help me to do the translation. The wooden floor of the Cathedral is from Canada. The supervisor of the restoration is from Spain, but the workers are from Potosi, some of them women. Some of the murals are original, some are restored. There are 5 bells at the belfry. The main one is 5 tons. The four little ones are one ton each. They ring on Sunday, Catholic holidays, and Xmas. The wood of the structure is from the Amazon region. .activity:Cathedral
