“It’s worth a Potosí” was used to describe anything that is extremely costly. #7MML #Bolivia
It’s worth a Potosí
Nowadays, there are only
about 200 companies and 6 000 miners left, hardly keeping the fame of Potosi still
alive. Their work is tough and dangerous and they barely earn a hundred dollars
So we are asking ourselves: Does the famous phrase of Don Quijote de la Mancha, “It’s worth a Potosí”, make sense anymore?
The pearl of the Spanish Crown
Could you believe that at the end of the 16th century the city, with over 100 000 inhabitants, was more populated and rich than Paris or London. Thousands of tons of silver were transported from this “pearl of the Spanish Crown” to the port of Buenos Aires and from there all over the world.

A prehistoric salt lake
Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat and one of the best places for awe-inspiring landscape photography. The salt plains completely covered by white salt together with small puddles and the sun reflection in it create an incredible magical atmosphere.
