  • It is a large church on the north side of the Alameda del Tahoe Park (Alameda Del Tajo). And specialty was cookies made in the morning 10 If you go past the inlet was closed. Without a tour group visited one after the other, but everyone, from the outside it just went into that. The Church is open is limited.

  • Passed the Bullring and the Alameda Park, located in the modern part of the city, this church in the square. Through a small staircase you enter this colonial style building whose interior rather plain surrounded by statues and paintings.

  • This convent features uncorrupted hand of Santa Teresa de Jesus and all your jewelry. It is the same as Francisco Franco took on an altar in his bedroom during the dictatorship. He then returned to the convent where all round reveres him. This year, as we are celebrating exposed but it is not always the case.

  • 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
  • Beautiful church in Ronda.Al side there is a chapel where you can visit the hand of Santa Teresa De Jesús.
