Architecture buffs will appreciate these two buildings: the convent for its outstanding example of 16th-century religious architecture and the church for its symbolic cupolas. A walk around the grounds reveals incredible catacombs and beautiful...more
Calle Tarija 47 | Corner of Nogales, Potosi, Bolivia
