Interesting, still active, cloister that offers guided tours with an overview of history etc. lots of antiques and christian works of art. a wishing tree and nice courtyard. worth the money if you're up there.

We walked to the top of the town and were not disappointed although out of breath, great plaza, a few stalls selling local handmade goods, next to the abbey.

Went quite early in the morning and enjoyed this square, particularly as it gave such a great view of this city that is surrounded by 7 hills.

Super cool look into Bolivian history and a place where presidents were assassinated and Franciscan monks still call home. It's a nice tour (Spanish) but can be a bit crowded. Go early. The convent houses a ton of historical art and it's pretty interesting. The...More

This plaza is beautiful and the views are wonderful. Also plan to eat lunch or have a drink at Café Gourmet Mirador (down a few stairs) from the Recoleta. Then walk down the hill and visit the wonderful Textile Museum.

La Recoleta is high above downtown Sucre but certainly worth the walk up. There is a lovely square with several vendors, a church and fabulous views over the city. There also is a great restaurant with outdoor seating overlooking the city.
