This was the first of St Teresa’s reformed carmelite converts, simple to the point of austerity. There is a small but informative museum attached.

While exploring Avila, I passed by this convent, a simple unassuming building. Unfortunately, it was closed and I didn’t manage to visit its interior.

Beautiful building and a very informative museum. Lots to see and marvel at - or question - depending on your viewpoint!

The convento includes the church plus a chapel in the place where Saint Teresa of Avila has born, and is a place of religious devotion, but nice to be seen in a historical context also

Simple place with possessions and chattels of the saint. The chapel is a delight too. A bit of peacefulness in the city

This is Saint Theresa first convent and we had Mass on the old chapel. To visit you have to ask the nuns.

Saint Teresa first foundation. It was her first convent she lived after leaving Minastery of Encarnation. To understand the figure of this saint, it is necessary to take the period she lived. This convent is most important in the history of the Carmel.

A nice simple chapel with strong connections to stbTeresa. After all besides the walls this place is about St Teresa. It reeks of history.

A long hot search for this: I had hoped it might even cap the Encarnacion - but NO. It was not well-staffed and the janitor seemed to have little interest in how his visitors were finding the visit. Also, there are still nuns in this...More

My hubby and I are Protestant so we were unfamiliar with the significance of some of the images depicted in the museum and church. We were give a brochure in English which helped.
