La Recoleta provides amazing views of Sucre and the surrounding mountains. The best views are at sunset and while you will have some company there (popular with locals and tourists alike) it still has a very peaceful feel. You pass by some vendors on the walk up there but there really isn't anyone hassling you at the top, which is... More

Taking a taxi there was only Bs10. A very relaxing place for having drinks in a restaurant as the sun was setting.

Get up there if you visit Sucre, you'll get a great view of the city. There are a few patios and restaurants nearby, so get there in the afternoon and stay until night time for a view of the city at night.

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.

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.
