Excellent church with a very picturesque courtyard and fabulous views of the ‘white city’ from the roof. The highest you can go is one of the two bell towers. Entry was 15 Bolivianos but I think this varies. Self guided.

Beautiful views of Sucre, very neat rooftop area. I also walked around and looked through the class room windows which was cool to see "school life" in Sucre

This hidden gem was one of my favorite activities in Sucre. If you want spectacular views of the "white city" this is the place! It is a little tricky to get to. It is open after 2 pm on most days. To get in, if...More

Amazing views from the mirador at the top. The church itself is small and quaint. A nice place to visit if you have a spare hour or so.

There's no printed guide, so it was nice to go with a teacher from my language school. There a great views from the roof, and interesting paintings of the early fathers, and a very Bolivian Last Supper, with Guinea Pig as the featured dish.

I asked to a vendor at the corner, and she told me that you have to enter through the school next to the church and it is available only from 3pm. I couldn't enter coz of my schedule.

This place is amazing and the views are stunning from the top. As previous people have mentioned you can only attend after 2.30pm as it is a functioning school. The entrance is on Calle Nicholas Ortiz. Pay 15BoBs upon entry and then head up to...More

A must-see view! And really neat architecture on the roof as well. Knock on the door if it's closed in the afternoon - small cost to enter but so worth it!
