Couvent de Santa Catalina

Posted by

Le couvent Santa Catalina à Arequipa. (Pérou)
Il a été construit par les espagnols en 1579. Sa surface de 20'462 m2 fait de lui le plus grand couvent du monde et le plus important édifice religieux du Pérou.
Il hébergeait 450 recluses qui n’avaient aucun contact avec le monde extérieur jusqu’en 1970.
Le couvent est si vaste qu’il est semblable à une ville avec ses rues, ses jardins, ses cloîtres et ses parcs.

Un sacré bleu intense qui me rappelle le jardin Majorelle à Marrakech. Beaucoup de simplicité dans ces arches.

That is a very brave blue but it feels to suit the setting, somehow.

There is a Santa Catalina Monastery in Cusco on the Arequipa street ... great coincidence. The simple architecture of the arches and the blue color are fascinating ... Beautiful shot Max !!!

@Baldwin Vandewalle: The Santa Catalina Monastery is in Arequipa. not in Cusco.

There is a church and monastery of Santa Catalina in Cusco too ... I was there but I could not enter that day because it was closed. You can check on Google
