In the Israeli desert overlooking the Dead Sea sits Masada (מצדה), an ancient ruined city atop a tall plateau. More than 2,000 years old, the settlement's significant fortifications were erected between 37 and 31 BCE. In 72 CE, Jewish rebels that had taken control of the city several years prior came under siege by the Roman army. Over the course of a year the Romans bombarded Masada while building a ramp up the side of the plateau, eventually overcoming the city's defenses. The ramp and the army's fortifications remain to this day, and tourists can either walk up the narrow snaking foot path or take a gondola to the top.

The moon reached the closest point in its orbit this weekend during a full moon, giving rise to the “supermoon,” appearing 30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than a typical full moon. If you missed it, the next one will pop up in August 2014. To see more supermoon pictures, visit newsfeed.time.com.

In Argentina’s capitol, Buenos Aires, the city’s most expensive stretch of real estate is not made up of luxury apartments, corporate skyscrapers or ultimately any buildings desgined for the living. Rather, the most expensive price tags belong to El Cementerio de la Recoleta (La Recoleta Cemetery): 15 acres of land that house over 4,500 mausoleums and above-ground tombs. Founded in 1822 as the first public cemetery in Buenos Aires, Recoleta adopted the layout of a small city with tree-lined blocks of mausoleums that boast elaborate funerary sculptures from a broad range of artistic styles. The cemetery has also come to house some of the country’s most illustrious figures, including Nobel Prize winners, military heroes, many of the nation’s presidents and—perhaps most famously—first lady Eva Perón.

The perfect hideaway.

In southern Africa, where the Zambezi River flows along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the water suddenly erupts into what those indigenous to the region call Mosi-oa-Tunya

The cover of TIME International this week features Pope Francis I. On the eve of his first trip to his home continent since his election in March, Howard Chua-Eoan's story asks whether the Pope's personal humility and focus on poverty will help revive the church's fortunes on his home continent.
