The Santa Catalina Monastary
Agri and I are probably the farthest thing from religious that you can find, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate beautiful architecture. In Arequipa, the thing to see is the Santa Catalina Monastary, so we dedicated an afternoon to wandering around the massive 20,000 square metre complex.
Originally built in 1580, today, the Monastary only houses about 20 nuns (I wonder how many square feet that is per nun?) 😉
If you’re interested in the history, you can check it out here.
