Santa Catalina convent

One of the walls of Santa Catalina Convent in Arequipa - a wonderful colonial rambling monastery rich with colour that housed at one time more than 160 nuns (the rich ones had their own servants!). Now there are only about 20 left tucked away in a small corner not open to the public.
