  • La Recoleta is without a doubt my favorite place in asucre, peaceful, choir is impressive and do not forget to take turns to the tree. LSS are walking tours. Recommended for families with children

  • It is a good place to see a panoramic view of the city in the square is the fountain of wishes, a sundial and the Diocesan Museum within this is a century-old cedar. The ascent on foot is a little hard, taxi is worth about 10 Bolivians, not give more.

  • A simple stroll up the hill. It was just 12 minutes from my hostel to catch the sunrise. The view from La Recolecta was pretty good but there is a nearby hotel that offers a much better view.
  • Very good!
