Visit Museo del Convento de la RECOLETA for insight into the colonial era in Bolivia. Housed in a convent founded in 1601, the museum and its site boast a rich history, having also served as a barracks and prison in the past. Take a guided tour and see the church, museum, and gardens. When in the church, look for the choir's wooden carvings dating back to the 1870s. From the square opposite the church, take in views of the city of Sucre down the mountain. Don't miss the 1,500-year-old cedar tree in the garden, one of the only survivors from the area's once plentiful cedar forests.
