Nice view of Sucre

It's a nice view of all of Sucre but personally I think there's a better view from the San Felipe de Neri rooftop

A great view of the city of Sucre with an excellent cafe lunch stop just in front of the viewing arcade

Walked up one morning perhaps already too late as it was a hot steep up hill street climb. Seems popular for early morning breakfast with tourists but not a lot else happening here . Maybe take a taxi up and walk back down.

there is nothing interesting to see at the square but before you get there there is a hotel where you can enter the terrace and see amazing view of Sucre. you can stay there even few hours :)

It is said that a first kiss at Recoleta, ensures a good and longlasting relationship. The lockers at the fences also indicates that this is a romantic spot. Although the place is nice for non-romantic people as well, as it gives you a nice view of Sucre and oportunity to buy handicrafts nearby.

Nothing but a square with some homeless people... The views of the city are OK, but not spectacular...

I climbed up to Recoleta with great expectations. Well, it doesn't have a clear view of the city. There are some artist selling stuff and asmall indigenious market nearby. When I was there it was cloudy so I can not comment on the sunset. It is a nice place but I am not impressed.

This place is very good to watch the view on the city. Nevertheless the plaza was very dirty when I visited it. I think that it could be better if it was more clean.

The place has a great view of the colonial center, how ever is a bit forgotten, place is all covered in bad graffiti smells a bit like piss, the sight is great tough!

The square has a nice overview on the city, but you can also have this in some churches in the town centre. The square itself looks good, but it is not special. Sometimes there is a happening on this square like a dance or a feast. Maybe then it's a better time to check it out.
