Simple, but beautiful church with lovely architecture. The church has 4 beautiful angel sculptures. Look in the classrooms (it's a private girls school) and you'll feel like you stepped back into the 1950's. The view from the roof is definitely worthwhile.

From the top, the view over Sucre is amazing. Especially nice when the sun goes down. Worth a visit, you just need half an hour!
