This 17th century convent has a lovely baroque facade. We did not go into the museum but enjoyed sitting and listening to the organ music.

If you are interested in St Teresa of Avila, you have to visit this church built over her birthplace. It has a small but interesting museum attached - with gift shop!

Interesting story behind St. Theresa of Avila. This convent was built around her home and has many vignettes depicting her early life in Avila. Also a bronze sculpture of her in front of the convent where some Catholics come to offer prayers.

The exterior facade is impressive. Prior to visiting this church, I wasn't aware it was built in memory of Saint Teresa who was born and lived here. There is a statue of St Teresa just in front of the church. Unfortunately, the staff outside told me it was closed when I was there around 1pm.
