Monasterio de Santa Catalina, Arequipa (2). PERU

The Monastery of 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.

Ta Phrom, Angkor. CAMBODIA

Ta Prohm is a temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm on the World Heritage List in 1992. Photos from Spring 2012
