  • Well, if you do get in Avila are-for the imposing walls, for the tough, Spanish Cathedral, then you can of course just as well go at Teresa. A wonderIjke combination of mysticism, school of law and practical sense, who worked from her home base, here in Avila. A woman who wanted to purify the Church of its sixteenth century decadent and so did by monasteries which followed its rules. At the same time climax on Jesus, witness bv the image of Bernini from the San Francesco in Ripa in Rome. Her museum is beautiful located in the crypt of her church. And who in her will deepen, can at work here. All Popes come here sooner or later along. It's a phenomenon, but who can anything with it?

  • Here's the first Monastery founded by St. Teresa of Jesus, he was dear to his heart: el monasterio San José and its Museum, el museo teresiano. We feel here all the devotion towards the Santa by the nuns that people call 'las Madres '. The Museum is small but important for the historical value of this place. IRIS received us with great sweetness. We learn a lot about the life of the community. So, Sainte Thérèse had made to build "huellas", kind of small hermitages in the gardens of the monastery in order to allow the religious in isolate themselves in prayer. The Museum offers an excellent selection of books about St. Thérèse and Saint Jean-de-la-Croix.

  • I've been twice in this museum that is based in the convent of San Jose. The Museum, its background, is magnificent and will lead to the delight of all who feel interested in the figure of Santa Teresa. However, I have to say that the Organization of the visits is disastrous. When we arrived, we were given a role with which we had to make the visit on our own. In addition, and I regret to say it, charge of the place did gala of good manners. It was too dry, which does not contribute to a good image of the place. Despite this, I recommend the visit.
