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.

Lots of these sort of things can be quite similar and samey but this place really stands out its amazing. Quite hard to find your way in and had to come back after 2.30pm. The prices seemed to be made up on the spot as we paid one price but other people had paid different prices but our 15 bs... More

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 you can walk around to see the city. There are stone benches where the monks... 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 ring the red bell next to the big wooden door. Inside at the end of... 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.

If you have not been here then you missed the best view of the city. It is located centrally with the 360 degree view of Sucre. The problem is that, this place is open only for 2 hours during the day from Monday through Saturday in the afternoons. It's easy to miss this schedule and very difficult to plan the... More

The church and tomb are really beautiful. We were the only ones inside at the time, wow. Getting up to the roof and the bells is cool and has some great views. A cheap attraction and must see. No pictures inside the church, thats a pity.

I went this school/convent when the schools were closed. I was almost alone.The building and the roof top views worth the 15 Bob you pay to enter. Don't look for the main entreance, the door is on the Nicholas Ortiz street, closer to the main plaze. It says Museo San Felipe Neri. Ring the bell. Go up up up and... More
