  • Only suitable for fanatics. Mysticism brought to the extreme. A good collection of religious imagery of the time. Beautiful objects for worship, which contrasts with the austerity with which the Carmelite nuns lived. It Reflects the darkness of Deep Spain, in a time of misery and famine, plagued with diseases.

  • Spectacular Museum of Religious art created through the Life and miracle of St. Teresa of Jesus. With works of different centuries it is a great collection quite attractive even for the public less familiar with the religious culture. Very well documented. As A main claim has the cell "adorned" where the Holy died as well as the grave where rest their remains.
