The plaza itself is quite average but it offers a great view of Sucre. Worth the walk.

Go to see to sunset! 15 min walking from the center. And you see all the city from the top. There is nice place to drink beer or eating some snacks

We walked up to La Recoleta to watch the sunset and it was beautiful, there is a lovely cafe to sit and have a glass of wine just off the square. Not to be missed.

The views from here are beautiful and it is in a safe area to walk to even at night. Sitting and either watching over the city or watching the kids play on the plaza is a great way to relax.

It's quite a hike up the very steep hill but it's definitely worth it in the end. Plenty of cafes and local markets too. But it's the views. Spectacular!

Walking up the very steep hill, past all the houses painted white and looking back at the view was pretty neat. The Recoleta offers wonderful views of Sucre, is an incredibly clean square with impressive arches, some craft stalls and has a restaurant over looking...More

It’s on top of a steep hill but certainly worth the walk. The view over the city is beautiful and there is a market, restaurant and public space available to relax and enjoy it.
