  • One of the churches of Ronda which is worth to be visited. During this visit, a mass was scheduled but we could get to see the inside. For me, the best is to see and to the outside turn in order to contemplate the exterior architecture.

  • Although ' recent construction» (at the foot of the medieval city side, everything is booked!) for your location and simplicity. The problem is that in August .... everything opens after 6:00 pm and we could not visit. We will return soon.

  • in this church, is the relic, the hand of Saint teresa of jesus, who was for a long time held by Franco, what surprised me is that taking this relic, the Church not charges for entering, which continues to be a good policy so it is a better approach of parishioners

  • Good place to see
  • She is a beautiful Church outside. I can only imagine what she looks like inside. Another reason to visit Ronda again.
  • . 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. .
  • Beautiful church located on a plaza
  • Among its walls The Carmelites keep the uncorrupted hand of Teresa de Jesus, Doctor of the Church and figure Summit of the mysticism of the Golden Age. Highlights the beautiful image of Mary Most Holy in Solitude, exit the gouge of the great sculptor Sebastián Santos and every Good Friday procession by Round accompanied by the pain of the rondeños through the streets of the city center. The Sweets of the Carmelite sisters, of Ten.
