Church of San Felipe Neri (Oratorio de San Felipe de Neri)

Reviewed By Barbora K

This church offers much more than you could imagine! Definitely go to 'mirador' where you get the best view all over city. Moreover, the colonial architecture makes you think that you are somewhere else than in Bolivia! It is also a school so on weekdays it is open only in the afternoon.

Museum of Indigenous Art ASUR

Reviewed By fiftystatesevenconts - Reno, Nevada

Enjoyed seeing different tapestries made through the years, but would have enjoyed seeing the woman at the entrance actually weaving and not just sort of sitting in front of her unfinished product. There were some really beautiful individual pieces on display.

House of Liberty Museum - Casa de la Libertad

Reviewed By AdM85 - Sydney, Australia

Fantastic tour! Its a bit useless to visit the place without a tour to be honest because there is no information displayed. But the tours are in Spanish, English, French or Quechua and included in the entry price. With the tour, it was a really interesting visit and I highly recommend.

You only have to sit in the park and you will get contact with the locals. We werethere during fiesta Virgin de Guadelupe. Lots of frinedly people dancing the streets.

General Cemetery

Reviewed By Haig B - Brighton, United Kingdom

Never been to a cemetery that was so well attended and maintained. There's a real sense that people remember and celebrate those they've lost. Shocked at the number of people visiting there on a Sunday. Graves 'decorated' showing the individual's personality.

La Recoleta

Reviewed By Joe V - Danbury, Connecticut

I got here early cause i had a quick morning. After walking up that nightmare of a hill, i waited for nearly two hours for it to open up after the city's siesta. After 230, the woman kept saying, another 20 minutes. After the 3rd time, i left. The square surrounding is beautiful and worth the trek up. The views from what is open and available are stunning. Enjoy!!

Simon Bolivar Park

Reviewed By Jarko2015 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This sloping park doesn't have a whole lot to see, but right in the centre is a mini version of the Eiffel Tower. Or at least, that's how it's described. It's highly comical and thus is something well worth coming to laugh at. You can actually climb the bright orange structure, but there's little to see from the top and it was designed either for children or midgets as the narrow, spiral staircase is very hard for an adult to navigate. At the top, there's possibly room for two at most.

Dinosaur Tracks (Cal Orck'o)

This site features a number of ancient dinosaur footprints.

Reviewed By Sarah K - Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

One of the most unique things about Sucre is it's huge collection of dinosaur footprints at Cal Orck'o. To get to the Parque Cretacico, head to the main plaza in Sucre, Plaza 25 de Mayo, and near the Cathedral there is a red double-decker "Dino Bus" that leaves at different times throughout the day. You'll get paired with a tour guide once you arrive to learn about the site and see the giant wall of dinosaur tracks. Heads up: You need to wear closed toed shoes! Another tip: go from 11am-1pm because the sun is best to see the prints!

Ethnographic and Folklore Museum

Reviewed By Alek C - Melbourne, Australia

This museum has a good collection of lcostume and headgear worn by local tribes during their various ceremonies. Entry is free, they are more concerned that you don't take photos, and it will only take you 20 minutes or longer if you want. Unfortunately there's no English translation.
The museum is just a block away from plaza 25 de Mayo.
