It was an interesting tour and imagining the inside life of the nuns. The museum is beautifully restored. I think the guide said they been working with the restoration about 5 years and just finished 2 weeks ago.

Very beautiful interior. I especially enjoyed the doors, windows, walls, hallways -- moreso than the art and statues. The tour was in Spanish but we managed to communicate the essentials. Times listed may not be right. I sat in the park and waited. The weather...More

One of few historical buildings in Cochabamba, so kind of must see while staying in the city. The convent is interesting for those, who have never seen this kind of places. Othervise, it's nothing special. When I visited it, the most important part (the Church...More

We turned up in the morning when we were told there would be English tours at 2.30pm, 3.30pm and 4.30pm. We came back, at the cost of a taxi journey, and the people told us there was no English guide available. Typical story for South...More
