  • Disappointing, we went ahead three times looking for the "convent" but it really is a church, the convent is attached to it but it cannot be visited.

  • Avila, it cannot leave without visiting the convent of its greatest symbol. Santa Teresa, a extraordinary figure of Spanish mysticism, which in addition development a great activity as a foundress of convents. On the religious level, in my opinion, Santa Teresa is the model search and finally of communion with God. For Avila and his Santa is necessary to visit your home her convent and Museum.

  • A very special place. Perhaps because I was surprised to see that my last name is found on one of the marker on one of the door near the church. First time to learn about the life of St. Teresa. You can also see the artifacts of St. Teresa's remains in one of the religious display nearby. Very contemplative atmosphere, specially when the place is not inundated with tourists. I wonder what the place feels like during winter when tourists are far between. Would like to put that in my bucket list. Someday....God willing. Overall impression, it will have more impact if you come with a religious frame of mind as opposed to party-going sightseeing mode.
  • Great to visit. A must see if you are in Avila.
  • An incredible experience when one reflects on the impact St.Teresa had on Spain and the whole Catholic Church. Very peaceful and prayerful place, excellent place to reflect on removing unnecessary things from life.
  • Very bad service. Asked us to wait for 30 mins for the table and we ended up waiting more than 2 hours. We just spent the day in Avila waiting to be served. Such a waste !!
  • 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
