Santa Catalina Monastery is one of the highlights of Arequipa in southern Peru. The over 20,000 square meter convent dates back 400 years and is a city within a city.
It’s a wonderful place to explore with brightly coloured buildings, narrow streets, pretty plazas and the original cells of the nuns. We loved the profusion of geraniums in this plaza.
