Cerro Rico „rich mountain“ is dominating the city of Potosi and it was the largest source of silver for medieval Spain. Only few tourist embarks on top of the mountain (even if it leads dirt road) to see Potosi from above. Most goes into the bowels of the mountain to get to know burdensome life of miners.
