There is a BS15 to visit the church, museum and cloisters, but annoyingly, they will also charge BS5 for photography. Only after you've paid the BS5 do they tell you there's no photography allowed anywhere inside, only of the cloisters and garden. Cheeky to say...More

We visited Sta. Clara six years ago. This visit was much more special, after the restoration of the wall paintings in the cloister. You can almost feel the hand of the artisans who painted these lovely scenes.

The convent recently underwent restoration and is very beautiful and interesting. The very old organ in the church is amazing! Fortunately someone was practicing when we were there so we got to hear it. We had a very good guide. Costs 15 bolivianos
