The Cinema Impero building, an Art Deco-style cinema, is seen on Harnet Avenue in Eritrea's capital Asmara, February 21, 2016. Eritrea's capital city boasts one of the world's finest collections of early 20th century architecture, which the authorities want declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When Italy's colonial experiment in Eritrea ended in 1941, it left behind an array of Rationalist, Futurist, Art Deco and other styles of Modernism in Asmara, a city they nicknamed "La Piccola Roma" or "Little Rome".

A visitor kneels in front of the Blessed Junipero Serra's grave at the altar inside the Carmel Mission Basilica in Carmel, California, September 15, 2015. Pope Francis will declare Friar Junipero Serra a saint at a Mass celebrated at the National Shrine in Washington on September 23 during the pontiff’s first visit to the United States. The Franciscan friar from Spain built a series of missions along the Pacific coast in the 18th century, in what is now California, to spread the faith among Native Americans. His advocates say he supported the Indians, introducing cattle and crops to their land. The Vatican has defended Serra against accusations that, as part of the Spanish colonial system, he suppressed Native Americans.

A detail of the 18th-century ceiling fresco illustrates the Biblical account of Christ's miracle in feeding multitudes by multiplying a few fish and loaves of bread, at the Atotonilco Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage site, in Atotonilco, on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, August 3, 2015. The town of 80,000 people, barely three hours north of Mexico City, supports an estimated 120 fine art galleries and folk art museums of national scope. In 2008, UNESCO named San Miguel a World Heritage site, citing it as a cradle of Mexican independence and highlighting its exceptional integration of architectural styles, from Baroque to neo-Gothic, within a 16th century Spanish colonial layout.

Tourists ride a U.S.-made 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air convertible car on Havana's seafront boulevard "El Malecon" May 21, 2013. People pay a lot of money to visit the Caribbean island that has been mostly off limits the past half century even though it is just 90 miles (145 km) from Florida. A four-day trip to Havana for two costs nearly $5,000, not including airfare, but the forbidden fruit aspect of Cuba is a big draw, said Edward Piegza, who led the first trip for his San Diego, California-based travel company Classic Journeys. Tourists from other parts of the world, mostly Canada and Europe, freely visit the island for its beaches, vintage American cars and Spanish colonial architecture. Picture taken May 21, 2013.

A car is driven beside colonial-style houses on Havana's prime real estate area of the "The Malecon" seafront boulevard March 18, 2013. In November 2011, the government decreed that Cubans could buy and sell homes for the first time since the early days of the revolution, paving the way for a real estate market that has become an exercise in bare-knuckled capitalism. Havana was once considered an architectural jewel with an eclectic mix of colonial homes and modern Art Deco construction, but much of the city outside the touristy Old Havana district is in a dilapidated state after decades of neglect and corrosion from humidity and salty sea air.
