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.

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!

The museum/church fee is only BS15, but despite claiming to be a museum, there aren't actually any exhibits as such. What there is here is the building and the church. The cloisters surrounding the courtyard lead up to the roof of the church, where you...More

It's a nice building with a good view of the city. It's worth a visit but it's not really a wow moment. We enjoyed 30mins here.

Delightful place to visit. Your first view of the cloisters is quite spectacular. You can get into the church at ground level. Also, have a look into the school classrooms. The views from the roof are great. Plenty of photo opportunities. If you struggle to...More
