Lonely Planet review

Potosí's elaborate colonial architecture merits a stroll around the narrow streets to take in the ornate doorways and facades, as well as the covered wooden balconies that overhang the streets. On Calle Junín, between Matos and Bolívar, is an especially lovely and elaborate Portón Mestizo doorway, flanked by twisted columns. It once graced the home of the Marqués de Otavi, but now ushers patrons into the Banco Nacional.
