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

4.7
Take in panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the old town from the rooftop terrace of Church of San Felipe Neri (Oratorio de San Felipe de Neri), one of the city's most significant neoclassical structures. Built at end of the 18th century, the cloister and the church today host a private school for girls. As you approach, you'll notice the exterior's white walls and sturdy simple columns, while inside the classrooms you may feel like you've taken a step back into the 1950s. Ask the students to give you a guided tour of the place in English. Many notable figures, including presidents and archbishops, rest in the crypt under the cloister. To enter the church you'll have to find a door a few feet away from the building. Once inside, do not miss the four sculptures of angels.
