  • Beautiful and old baroque convent. It was built in the 17th century in the exact place where the house of Saint Theresa of Avila ides to be. The golden altars are pieces of arts!

  • This is the birthplace of St Teresa of Jesus. I have never been myself but would love to visit it and it has a great link to a website that celebrates her 500th birthday next year. I wanted some info as this is her feast day the 15th October
  • Gorgeous ceiling and Windows.
  • Nuns built on the former home of the Holy family, within which you can visit a huge Museum which presents his life, sequentially orders that they influenced it to carry out the Carmelite reform, the initiation and development of its foundations in life and his work translated into several languages, in addition to the Church, which includes the set of two wonderful carvings by Gregorio Fernández of the Holy and the vision of Christ tied the column of great realism and drama, especially the wounds of Christ that seem to still be bleeding. Visit to learn about the life and work of Santa Teresa.
