San Felipe Neri

Some of the most spectacular views of Sucre can be found on the roof of this church and convent, which was founded in 1795, constructed in a neo-classical style. The roof is flanked by 2 octagonal towers linked by an arch with lanterns on the domes. Our photos include some taken from the two bell towers. The surface of the roof is tiled. What an amazing place!
