  • It is a very short visit to the convent and the only thing that looks are relics and things of Santa Teresa and the Church which inside, it takes about 30 minutes to see it all and surplus.

  • Since it is a convent from closure, the view is short but interesting. Situated outside the Centre, keeps a relic of Santa Teresa and elements of how they lived at the time.

  • It is here that Holy Teresa of Jesus lived 27 years of his life carmelite prior to founding monasteries loose carmelites (a return to the simplicity of monastic life). The Incarnation, to visit rooms on the ground - floor, a museum on the first floor and near the entrance (not to be missed): visiting of the XV (the same as the Santa time). We were told that St. Therese and St. John beyond-cross is met (each on its side of the grid) and had and lengthy discussions. When they entered in Ecstasy together, we have seen levitate them both. Also, the nuns make small sculptures of the Virgin by hand, sold at a reasonable price. There are no available books, written by witnesses of the life of Saint Thérèse nuns.
