  • It was really on top of my stay in Jerez de la Frontera, alone the Church deserved more than the trip overall! I had read the reviews and the day before, I called to ask for confirmation of the mass time on the phone the nun begins the conversation with: "Ave Maria"! I went early in the morning on a day of heavy rain: it all seemed closed and abandoned, I took courage and I pushed the first door that takes you in only one space in front of the Church itself. At that point, I push the second door and unreal scenario, out of time, I made reality: angelic voices sing and the mass is in progress, the dominant colors, I would say maybe the only, are white and light wood benches, the sisters are covered by caps and sorrid Ono happy. For them there is a reserved space at the foot of the altar, for the rest of the audience, five people around me too, light wooden benches lie beyond this space and on the ground there are squeaky clean carpets made of plant fiber, almost not wanting to disturb the depths do meditation and prayer. Everything is at a standstill in centuries before, very few lights, candles of wax and the sisters receive the Eucharist stretched out on the floor. I still wear thrills and emotion in my heart! I took pictures, I felt to notch the beauty and purity of a place so intimate.

  • If you have the opportunity to hear mass in the monastery, you can hear the chants of the Sisters of Bethlehem which will transport you to another era. from what little can be seen, sit on the floor that is covered by a hard carpet of grass.

  • We visited the Church was open. But we were delighted. A few meters from the road leading into town on the one hand, to Cadiz or Algeciras on the other, yet I seem to keep noise and chaos. Clear stone decorated with refinement and elegance. A place just outside the town, to get to the car, (there is a dirt parking lot entrance) should be absolutely visited.
