Novices studying to be nuns, stop to smell the roses in the flower garden of the cloistered convent, Santa Catalina Convent. Built in the 1580s and enlarged in the 17th century, now 30 nuns live behind the walls in silence and prayer. The young novices are given some free time and activities as they adjust to their cloistered life in the monastery in Peru.
