ATTRACTIONS


In Santa Cruz de la Sierra you will not loose your time. If one decides to stay in the urban area, then has more than one choice to have a great time: the old helmet offers an idea of how the old city was, the Cabins of Piraí are ideal for relaxING.

If one wishes to discover some of the mysteries of the forest or of the ancient cultures, then can visit some of the Jesuit missions located close to the city or the sanctuary of Cotoca, to which thousands of crucinos arrive in pilgrimage; another interesting option is to visit the pre-incas ruins of Saimapata.

When being in Santa Cruz, you should visit these places:

Metropolitan cathedral: remarkable for its wooden vaults covered by beautiful pictorial decorations. Its history is full of changes and it is said that it was built by the Mercedario Fray Diego de Porres, during the administration of the Viceroy Toledo. In 1839, the marshal Andrés de Santa Cruz, ordered the substitution of the old temple. The mission was given to the French architect Felipe Bestres.

Museum of Sacred Art: Sculptures, paintings, silver jewels and the religious objects that the Jesuit used in their evangelizing missions are exhibited in this museum, that is one of the most complete of Bolivia.

Church of San Andres: Their piazza evokes the old Greek constructions due to the presence of statues in the frontis.
Church of San Roque: The temple has three areas with wooden structure and external eaves.

Valle Grande: The details of the constructions of this town are clear testimonies of the Iberian influence. Here, a fair to which residents of the neighboring communities attend, is carried out.

El Arenal: Fragile ships cross the artificial lagoon that gives life to this park, one of the biggest attractions in Santa Cruz.
Sanctuary of Cotoca: In December, hundreds of faithful people of Santa Cruz walk in pilgrimage the 20 kilometers that separate the city from the sanctuary -built in 1902 - to surrender cult to the Virgin of Cotoca.

The Cabins of Piraí: In the shores of the river, expert cooks prepare the most exquisite dishes of the "crucena" food. Fun and amusement center, this corner west of the capital, offers a magnificent view of the Piraí and of the greenery that surrounds the city.

The Chiquitanía: In these eastern lands that belong to the counties of Ñuflo de Chávez, Velasco and Chiquitos, the Jesuit priests evangelized to the natives; plus, they built beautiful temples, as Concepción, San Ignacio de Velasco, Santa Ana, San Miguel, San Rafael, San Javier. The church of the town of San José is remarkable for having been totally built in stone.

Trip to the Yapacani River: Ideal for navigation or to rest in its beaches of white sands or to prove luck with the fishhooks and baits, this place of the Orient -at 120 kilometers from Santa Cruz de la Sierra- is an excellent alternative for the tourists.

Samaipata: Mysterious and undecipherable, the carved rock of Samaipata keeps its secrets to the investigators and studious. The ancient inhabitants of the Bolivian Orient carved animals and parallel grooves that point to the sky on its surface.

The pre-incas rock of Samaipata is 200 meters long and 60 meters wide. A series of colored caves and a depression -known as El Hueco- whose function has not still been explained by the archaeologists.
