Artificial and a bit nonsense

Yes, St John of the Cross died there but everything you see in the visit is recreated and unoriginal. Even the gilted chapel built for him and restored not long ago doesn’t make sense with the man. The guide didn’t seem to know that a mystic was. It’s just the place where he died recently converted into a sort of religious disneyland.

Fascinating look at an important mystic, quite full of relics

Large exhibition covering history and writings in an old monastery. The manuscripts and details of his relationship with St Teresa of Avila were fascinating.

Just a short stop

A little bit boring place, a part from the beautiful church and the old cell where the Saint spent his last days, now an interesting chapel. The convent would have been much more fascinating if the environments inhabited by the friars had been preserved intact, and showed their humble daily life and monastic rules. It conserves very little of the mysticism one can espect.

A stop on the pilgrimage of San Juan de la Cruz
Apr 2016 • Couples
We had heard of this great Spanish mystic and decided to visit the sites where he was born, lived, and died. Ubeda was where he died after a difficult illness. The museum/convent is very well curated, and visitors will get a good idea about his life and death. Grim details in many of these places are the reliquarios - places where relics of saints are kept and displayed. This museum has a couple of fingers and a leg bone. Some modern Catholics we met abhor this old practice but understand it from a historic perspective.

This museum is dedicated to the Saint John of the Cross a 16th century writer, poet and mystic. Considered one of the most important writers of Catholic Literature and one of only 35 Doctors of the Catholic Church.
He along with Santa Teresa de Jesus founded the Carmelites. The muesum is also the place where he died. The museum and ajoining church is breathtaking.
