Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Entrance was 20 Bs for foreigners and the only tour is in Spanish. The tour guide introduces the religious paintings and furniture that are predominantly from the 17th or 18th centuries. The guide talks about the nuns (monjas) and showed us where they lived and were buried. Between 400-600 monjas were buried in the crypt under the church (the tour takes you there). In the church is a big and very old organ. It is only played at Christmas and special nights). The convent is pretty and the only place you are allowed to take photos. In the middle is a garden where they grow some fruit and vegetables. After the tour of the museum be sure to head around the corner to their shop. The monjas still make and sell the only chicken empanadas in town and they were delicious (as were the salteñas). The fund from the tour and the food help pay for the ongoing restoration of the church.

20bs for entrance and 5bs to take pictures. However you can only take pictures of the gardens you see above, so definately not worth the extra 5. It was disappointing that the only information was given by a Spanish speaking guide (who was very knowledgeable so you are fine if fluent in Spanish). No written information in any language.

You can get a guided tour (only Spanish) here for 20bs pp. And pay 5 bs extra to take pictures. The highlight of this tour is by far the g convent with s beautiful garden. The rest is just some religious art and an ugly church.

We stopped here on a guided tour of the city and were told about the history of the Santa Clara Convent. It was interesting to learn that it is a cloistered convent. Unfortuntely it was after hours and closed to the public so we saw it only from the outside which was kept very clean and built in the historical colonial style.

There is a BS15 to visit the church, museum and cloisters, but annoyingly, they will also charge BS5 for photography. Only after you've paid the BS5 do they tell you there's no photography allowed anywhere inside, only of the cloisters and garden. Cheeky to say the least. The guide only speaks Spanish, which was fairly ridiculous as the entire group I was with spoke only French and English. There are two museum galleries and the church itself, all of which have very interesting artwork and artefacts. The church is an unusual pastel and gold decor, which is very romantic in style. The cloisters have some very nice, albeit rather simple murals and good views of the garden below. The fees are minimal, but it's still strange to pay for a tour that you can't understand to for photos you're not allowed to take.

You get a guided tour for your 15BOB. While our guide had limited English it did not distract from our experience. The cloisters and wall paintings are particularly good. Only open in the afternoon and the entrance is on Calle Calvo - photo of door attached. Go through the doors and up the stairs to buy your ticket.

Absolutely beautiful convent complex with an array of lovely religious works of art. Really interesting museum.
the building itself is a fine old thick walled colonial one with the most magnificent interior courtyard which is covered in shrubs and leafy trees. You can stroll around it with its cloister like arched walkway or above it on an open corridor looking down onto the greenery.
A lovely place to visit iif in Sucre.

This is a great museum and what it makes it stand out is the new part of the tour where you can enter the cloistered part of the convent - historically blocked off to outsiders - and see the uncovered wall paintings. It's incredible and our guide was lovely. Make sure to take your time and ask questions!
