Monasterio y Templo de Santa Clara and Museo - Historical Building Sucre - Bolivia

This working monastery was founded in the 17th century and took 18 years to build. The temple houses two large rooms containing 17th- and 18th-century artwork and religious pieces, which you will be shown as part of the museum tour. In the lower hall, a set of small painted double doors lead to the airy Santa Clara church, with its beautiful bright furnishings in grey and gold, angel figurines and chandeliers. It was remodeled in the 20th century using a mix of French Baroque and Neoclassical styles. At the back you’ll find the striking 17th century organ, containing 541 pipes, which is still in use. Mass is held daily at 7.30am, on Sundays at 8am.
