Sucre sightseeing

Salar de Uyuni 2013-05-015At the end of a few low energy days in Sucre we discovered 2 sights which made our stay worthwhile:

The monastery of San Felipe Neri was built from 1795 to 1799 and is one of the most important constructions in the neoclassical style of the city. It is arguably the best place in Sucre to watch the sunset. Its large roof terrace offers some interesting views of the city and enough architectural detail to excite any photographer. We got lucky that the sun broke through the cloudy sky just in time before disappearing behind the horizon.

The cemetery of Sucre is listed in any tourist guide book and typical for a Bolivian cemetery. There are plenty of personal notes to be observed for a long stroll during a quiet lunch time.
