Visit San Francisco of Potosi Convent and Temple, Bolivia's oldest religious complex. Originally constructed in 1547, it was demolished due to its inadequate size and then rebuilt in 1707. The church features two towers and an outdoor temple. Step inside to see the interior full of Baroque ornamentation, and look for the image of Christ of Vera Cruz, dating from 1550. Climb to the top of the church towers or up to the convent roof for panoramic views over the city and the nearby mountain.
