  • It is just a short walk from the walled part. It can be easily. You have to request information about opening hours because it is not always open.

  • It is the first convent founded by Santa Teresa, picking up his monastic ideal of simplicity and austerity. It consists of a primitive Church and the posterior one, characterized by the Avileña bloody Cali stone vaults. Attended us very politely replying to questions that we did them on the Church and the small museum.

  • Go to the crypt to see the Museum of Saint Teresa of Avila, the crypt is beautifully vaulted with bricks, we see the reconstitution of the room.

  • Out calls no attention, stone a few gates, and when you enter is like travelling to the past. The distribution and quantity of rooms with plenty of objects and details makes you to spend much time there without realizing. If you coincides with the mass, I could hear the nuns singing through a few bars that exist in the chapel. Wonderful experience. You can not miss on your visit to Ávila.

  • Today 24 August the pleasant memories of my encounter is come to mind with the Blessed Mother TERESA in her convent of san José de Ávila on the first trip I made to Europe. And this memory comes me maybe a day as today 24 of August, 1562 in the feast of san Bartolomé the Holy Mother Teresa began the reform of Carmen, with mismatches her nuns... God be blessed by that palomarcito of the Virgin where home order of barefoot Carmelites "this House is a sky, if you can you have on Earth, for who is content only please God and ignores content yours" (STJ - C 13 7). The convent of San Jose was the first monastery of Christianity which was built under the patronage of this Saint

  • The visit to this monastery is a point within the Teresian route in Ávila. The first of their foundations had many modifications over, but preserved the chapel in the original from the convent in which can reveal the humble origins of the great work of Santa Teresa and his Museum can see objects pertenientes to it that allow us to meet several interesting aspects, including their physiognomy or part of her outfit
