Potosí, described as the most populated city on earth at the peak of its magnificence, when the guts of the "Cerro Rico" were extracted from its interior, supplied the money that fed European capitalism from the sixteenth century onward. Today, the work in the underground corridors continues as before. Dive in, enter a world loaded with the traditions of the miners, and come to appreciate their strange relationship with the coca leaf and the "Tio", (the figure that reigns in the underground world).
