  • Es una visita agradable y refrescante en un día caluroso....it is a nice visit...you should enter when the sun is up!  more »
  • This is a convent where the nuns bake pastries for sale but you can not see them there is a revolving window to pay. There is the hand of the founding Saint to see.  more »
  • Our favorite part of our plaza visit was watching the children at play, the groups of local seniors gathered together, and other residents of Ronda enjoying the evening. Best to visit during sunset.  more »

  • . A handsome building facing an open area, so you can get a good photo easily! It has a story . . . In it was kept a precious religious relic, the hand of Saint Teresa of Avila. A hand which, legend tells, stayed firm and in perfect condition several centuries after her death in 1582. Impressed by this tale, the Generalissimo Francisco Franco, on winning the Civil War, had the hand removed from Ronda and taken to his home in the royal palace of El Pardo, and here it remained until his death in November 1975. The Mayor of Ronda petitioned for the hand to be returned (why didn't the Mayor of Avila get in there faster?), and two months later it was ceremoniously reinstated in the church. Right next door to the church is the Convento de Las Hermanas Clausuradas, a nunnery which bakes cakes and pastries for sale to the public. As they are "cloistered" - hidden away from the world - you can buy from them but not see them. So they have a sort of revolving wooden tray, a bit like the ones you have in a railway station to put down your money, it gets turned around for the ticket seller to pick up your money, put down your ticket, and turn it round again for you. Except that in the station there is glass and you can see the seller. Here it's wood, and you cannot see the nun. You just say what you want from the cakes on display (they sometimes have hand-made baby clothes too), put down your money, it is whisked round and out come your purchases. .
