  • It is a ride that is interesting to learn about the history of Santa Teresa and her family. It explains much of what centuries later was living in certain areas, where there was to show what was so Catholic is.

  • The figure of Santa Teresa is essential in Avila, so visit the convent in which is located the House where was born and the Museum about his life and work is essential. The convent, beyond the importance of her character, are the works of Gregorio Fernández. Also this sculptor works can be found in the Museum, still more interesting than the convent. He made a careful review of figure, the relevance and the work, both literary and religious, of the Holy.

  • 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
