Oruro Things to See and Do

follow us

Whether it鈥檚 because of its harsh climate or its dry landscape, Oruro doesn鈥檛 have the best reputation among travelers. This, however, is a bit unfair, as there are enough things to see and do to keep you busy for a couple of days, despite the conditions. As Oruro was once a thriving mining town, there are a handful of museums honoring the past glory days, and some monuments which do the same. If history isn鈥檛 your thing, there鈥檚 also a movie theater and, just 20 minutes away, some enticing thermal pools and private hot tubs.
