  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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
