The church is part of the convent of the enclosed Carmelite Order of nuns started by St Teresa de Avila. Romanesque in style the church houses the incorrupt hand of The founder of the order. Although visiting hours are restricted, at the end of the patio on the left of the church one can buy some very delicious cakes and... More

Only open in the morning and late afternoon, you must try the pastries. I recommend the "Torte de Virgin" and the Magdelaines. The nuns are cloistered, so you will never see them. You go up to the little nook with a lazy susan in it - you ring the bell and tell them what you want to buy, they will... 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,... More

What a wonderful place, easy to navigate and full of surprises. We disliked the noise of the outside tours that seem not to understand that this is still a church but once the tours had left, I had the whole place to myself to just sit and contemplate the beautiful architecture and art.

This is a beautiful, old church, which is still in use. In a side room are all the processional regalia and gold, behind glass, of course. A short walk from the main square and bullring, it is well worth a visit, if only for the cool quiet interior. Entrance is free, and when no service is being held, only a... More
