An absolute must

This is the reason I came to alba de tormes. This will not be to everyone’s taste but it is a must see and the staff are friendly. The video is only in Spanish but if you have no Spanish just wander round and soak up the history of Carmelite devotion displayed in this place.

The souvenirs are well worth a look but remember the Carmelite fathers church opposite the church where Teresa herself is buried has a piety shop with English books and is also worth a visit

I really love Theresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross. For me, this museum is just amazing. It has many relics of the two saints, manuscripts and personal correspondence. You can also see the old rectory, the courtyard, and the church.

This was the Carmelite Convent where the preserved body of St. Theresa lies and is well worth your time to visit. I recommend a guided tour as the guides are very informative.

Very Nice Exhibition with Audio Guide

This modern Carmelite Museum adjoins the monastery and Church of the Annunciation. It was quite worthwhile to see the many exhibits of religious items and they provide a hand-held audio guide. From the museum, you can view and venerate the relics of St Teresa of Avila that are on display above the church altar. Admission fee is reasonable and also covers access to her deathbed cell located in the church.

Surprisingly good collections and cheap

For 3 euros we were able to visit the museum with an audio guide 😍

They had few but good pieces... Relics and also some interesting liturgical or church pieces... The highlight was the relic of Saint Teresa of Avila and the silver altar!

An anonymous painting of the virgin and the child captivated my attention.
