“Great place for a view over the city”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a 15 minute walk from the main square, and gives a nice viewpoint over the city. We visited in July which is winter and it was nice, but I would think that in the summer it would be a great place for a cooling breeze.

“Great views and beautiful church”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is definitely a place that you need to go, even if only to the square. There are beautiful views over Sucre and into the distant mountains. It is also a hang out spot for children playing football and locals hanging out- it has a really nice vibe.
The church/museum is also worth a visit. It is very quick (30-45mins) and is quite interesting mainly for the tranquil building and gardens. Also a very old tree.

“A lot of history and histories about this place. Worthwhile visiting”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a very good English speaking tour guide who in addition to the "official version" told us all kinds of anecdotes about the place which made it twice as interesting.

“Worth the walk for the view!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great spot to take photos. Nice churches, and the patio restaurant below was good value...nice to relax and have lunch, or a drink and enjoy the views.

“One of the best views of the city!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I always take visitors up to the Recoleta for one of the best panoramas of Sucre. You also have the option to visit the museum, eat at the 'Mirador', and find some artisan souvenirs to purchase. If you go to Sucre you need to visit this place. It's free to walk up or you can catch a taxi for cheap!
