  • The convent Church of Santa Teresa was built over the supposed birthplace of the Saint. In the interior of the church you can see the room where Santa Teresa was born. A side outside of the Church access to the Teresian Museum installed in the crypt of the convent, is divided into 10 rooms, containing paintings, books and objects concerning the life of the Avila Santa. If you are going to visit Avila two days, I recommend the Visitavila tourist card for €15, which gives access to 11 monuments, among them the Museum of Santa Teresa (with entering the wall, Cathedral, Basilica of San Vicente and Palace Superunda already have it redemption).

  • This very well the convent because inside life reflected whole of Santa Teresa. We liked a lot.

  • Stroll the streets of Ávila in the historic is a joy. When you get to a site such as the convent of Teresa of Jesus and see samples of a person who fought for his beliefs and woman, in the 16th century, makes you think and gives very valuable example of life.

  • 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.
