. 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

Interesting history in this church. 4 euro tour offers audio guide which explains the architecture and history inside this monument. While contents span centuries, much of the art is from the 19th & 20th century with excellent examples of paintings, wood and metal sculpture. Very pleasant stop for a visit while in Ronda.

The volume of the church is impressive and the side chapels are beautiful in the high baroque manner.

This is a very unusual church in that it has arched "theater boxes" built into its facade so that dignitaries of long ago could watch events in the main square. A portion of the remaining Mirhab just inside the entrance is a delicate beauty. The informative audio guide is complementary with the entrance fee.
