The museum/church fee is only BS15, but despite claiming to be a museum, there aren't actually any exhibits as such. What there is here is the building and the church. The cloisters surrounding the courtyard lead up to the roof of the church, where you...More

It's a nice building with a good view of the city. It's worth a visit but it's not really a wow moment. We enjoyed 30mins here.

Delightful place to visit. Your first view of the cloisters is quite spectacular. You can get into the church at ground level. Also, have a look into the school classrooms. The views from the roof are great. Plenty of photo opportunities. If you struggle to...More

We came here by recommendation of our Spanish teacher and weren't disappointed. For 15bs you get a fantastic view of the city and get to meander through the halls of this beautiful building. Great photo opportunities from up here.

Stunning view of Sucre from the rooftop and the courtyard is fantastic with the right light. It's not super easy to find -> you need to ring a doorbell just after the temple and can only visit between 14:30 and 17:30

This is an elementary school, but after 2:30, you are allowed to tour it. Being a former elementary teacher, I was as interested in peeking in classroom windows as the vista. You climb to the second floor, then one more flight to the rooftop where...More

This church has a hidden secret. On top of the roof you have the best view over the town for less money. The entrance is hard to find but that's why I made photo's. It is in the sidestreet in a college. Hou have to...More

Nice view of the city is the only thing you can expect but I think it is worth it. The building is not very interesting but you can see there school calsses and students inside.
