Monasterio de Santa Catalina, Arequipa. PERU

Santa Catalina is a Monastery of nuns of the Dominican order, built in the 16th and 17th centuries. It’s a huge complex, like a small village, with an intricate structure composed by countless small squares, patios and alleys. It’s characterized by its vividly blue and red painted walls. Probably the most photogenic religious building I have ever visited, and unquestionably one of the many wonders of Peru. Summer 2009.
