The main attraction that San Felipe Neri has to offer is the roof-top terrace. Beautiful as the sun starts to set on Sucre, turning the whitewashed buildings into hues of yellow and orange. The belfries are also worth a climb, although you should watch your...More

Probably the best panoramic view of the city considering proximity. Make sure you ring the door bell on the side of the church. I didn't realize the door is often just left closed. People are allowed to go up unaccompanied so make sure you walk...More

Whenever we had visitors come to Sucre, we took them here. The views are great, the architecture is wonderful, and the history is interesting. There is a small little chapel that has amazing acoustics too, we've sang in there a handful of times as we...More

Like Matt P said in his review, this gem is a bit hidden. It took me a while to figure out how to enter. The entrance is on the west side sidewalk. Pass the large church doors, which is definitely not hidden but locked, walking...More

The Church/convent is a lovely building and allows you to go up to the roof to watch the sunset over Sucre and the mountains. The cost was 15 bolivianos and also included a short tour of the convent.
