Memoria de Conservación en el Monasterio de Santa Catalina (Report on the Conservation of the Santa Catalina Monastery)

The sixteenth-century ex-convent of Santa Catalina de Siena is a popular destination for tourists visiting the historic center of Arequipa, Peru, and an important religious complex for the local community. After the site’s inclusion on the 2008 Watch, WMF supported the restoration of mural paintings in the church and the rehabilitation of several rooms that had been damaged by earthquakes. This publication by the Department of Conservation of Promociones Turísticas Del Sur describes the extensive rehabilitation work undertaken at the complex, and the transformation of two rooms for public use.
