  • It was closed the day I went for the sunset. It has beautiful views over the city of Sucre and the sunset hour is particularly mesmerizing. It takes a 20min walk from the center. Take your time to wander the busy streets. When you get here the vibe totally changes becoming chilled and contemplative.
  • Not open today.
