Church of San Felipe Neri (Oratorio de San Felipe de Neri), Sucre

4.7
Take in panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the old town from the rooftop terrace of Church of San Felipe Neri (Oratorio de San Felipe de Neri), one of the city's most significant neoclassical structures. Built at end of the 18th century, the cloister and the church today host a private school for girls. As you approach, you'll notice the exterior's white walls and sturdy simple columns, while inside the classrooms you may feel like you've taken a step back into the 1950s. Ask the students to give you a guided tour of the place in English. Many notable figures, including presidents and archbishops, rest in the crypt under the cloister. To enter the church you'll have to find a door a few feet away from the building. Once inside, do not miss the four sculptures of angels.

  • A beautiful place to visit and enjoy the view of the city from a different perspective. A guided tour might be worth.

Where to stay in Sucre

With building restrictions in place for decades, the city of Sucre has developed a little differently than most other cities on the continent. However, the touristic appeal of Sucre has driven up demand for accommodations--now slotted in old, colonial-era buildings rather than new-build high-rises. This development ethos has worked well, with lodgings in Sucre's center among the most comfortable and characterful in the country. Exclusive options cluster around the town's prettiest plazas, with grand rooms and fine-dining restaurants. Budget-minded visitors should explore the range of posadas (guesthouses), set in modest formerly residential buildings on the town's side streets.
