This is one of the colorfully painted walls fo the Santa Catalina Convent in Arequipa, Peru.

The convent was founded in 1580, but was opened to the public in 1970 -- the current living quarters of the convent are still kept private. The nuns used to live completely enclosed behind the huge walls with no personal contact with the outside world. Today, they are allowed limited contact with the external world, and do not iteract with the hundreds of tourists that visit the convent every day. Out of about 200 nuns who once lived here, today only 30 still do so.

The streets inside the convent are made of cobbled stones and named after Spanish towns like Toledo. The various streets run down alleys and open up to courtyards and plazas decorated with with fountains and gardens. In all, it contains three cloisters, six streets, 80 housing units, a square, an art gallery, and a cemetery.

Very, very, very nicely done! Stunning color, very slight tilt just to show it is man-made and not machine-manufactured, great texture, good job. Very good job! :) And a good note. Did you do any PP beyond the standard things like sharpening/cropping?

Thank you for the gospel in this photo, JC. Here is the story if our lord and God Jesus Christ.

1 When Jesus therefore understood the Pharisees had heard that Jesus maketh more disciples and baptizeth more than John
2 (Though Jesus himself did not baptize, but his disciples),
3 He left Judea and went again into Galilee.
4 And he was of necessity to pass through Samaria.
5 He cometh therefore to a city of Samaria, which is called Sichar, near the land which Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria, to draw water. Jesus saith to her: Give me to drink.
8 For his disciples were gone into the city to buy meats.
9 Then that Samaritan woman saith to him: How dost thou, being a Jew; ask of me to drink, who am a Samaritan woman? For the Jews do not communicate with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said to her: If thou didst know the gift of God and who he is that saith to thee: Give me to drink; thou perhaps wouldst have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith to him: Sir, thou hast nothing wherein to draw, and the well is deep. From whence then hast thou living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank thereof, himself and his children and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said to her: Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but he that shall drink of the water that I will give him shall not thirst for ever.
14 But the water that I will give him shall become in him a fountain of water, springing up into life everlasting.

15 The woman said to him: Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith to her: Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said: I have no husband. Jesus said to her: Thou hast said well: I have no husband.
18 For thou hast had five husbands: and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband. This, thou hast said truly.
19 The woman saith to him: Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers adored on this mountain: and you say that at Jerusalem is the place where men must adore.
21 Jesus saith to her: Woman, believe me that the hour cometh, when you shall neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, adore the Father.
22 You adore that which you know not: we adore that which we know. For salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeketh such to adore him.
24 God is a spirit: and they that adore him must adore him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman saith to him: I know that the Messias cometh (who is called Christ): therefore, when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith to her: I am he, who am speaking with thee.
