Right in the heart of Recoleta, directly on the plaza, this museum is only BS15 to enter, but you will have to wait for a tour guide, who alas, only speaks Spanish. The tour takes in the surprisingly large grounds, the cloisters, the beautiful choir...More

Beautiful museum, however, you are only allowed 30mn to visit it, which we only found out because we were taking time to look at everything, to the annoyance of our guide. Also, all explanations in Spanish only, although, we became aware that she could understand...More

I had a guided tour in Spanish; it was the only way I could see the museum. Despite me not understanding Spanish I thought the museum was interesting and somewhat easy enough to understand what was what. The building is beautiful on the inside, the...More

The entire area around the plaza Anzues with the museum, beautiful views, lovely architecture on the buildings was very nice, peaceful and cleanly kept. We had a private quick tour and enjoyed it. There are a few craft stalls right next to it.

Interesting little place. Fun to go to if you have the time but not a 'must see/must do' thing in Sucre. Had my own private tour but in Spanish. Felt a little rushed but lots of information. Like the oldest tree and the choir area...More

Guests are taken on a guided tour, but unfortunately, only in Spanish. You are not allowed to roam on your own as many of the doors are locked, so the guide not only leads you from room to room, but unlocks and relocks the doors...More

Like some other reviewers said, the tree on the inside is Huge!! Very cool. Overall I felt like the place was in disrepair and could use some attention. A lot of the rooms/areas were roped off and we were not allowed to see them.

This alone was worth the entrance fee. It's an amazing space, full of history and if you're lucky enough you'll see one of the resident fathers. The tour is only in Spanish but she was very clear and patient and confirmed if we were correct...More
