The convent is a special place, full of calm and intimacy. A jewel of Baroque architecture which you will enjoy especially if it is a hot day. You can buy the sweets made by the nuns in artesanal way. A heavenly taste!!

The convent was surprisingly nice to visit. A lot more to it than one would expect. A variety of artifacts throughout the church and a lovely courtyard entry. It is a peaceful place to sit for a few moments and reflect on life.

The convent is beautiful with many religious artefacts. This is more than an attraction. Go and see if you are in search of calm peacefulness and support the work of these lovely women - buy some cakes

The church, cloister and small museum over three floors is open to the public at the small charge of 2 Euros. The museum accommodates old church furniture and nunnery related artefacts such as scourges for self-flagillation. The cloister is peaceful and one corner is made particularly elaborate since it houses a special statue of the Virgin that is carried around town in religious processions. The church nave has a series of paintings of saints dressed in eighteenth century dress.

We arrived at the convent to buy "English cake", a speciality of the good sisters who bake it here. We spoke with two of the sisters, originally from Kenya, who have made Carmona their home. The convent is beautiful with many religious artefacts to see but it feels disrespectful to review this special place as a visitor "attraction" in the normal sense of tourist destinations. Go and see if you are in search of calm peacefulness and support the work of these lovely women - buy some cakes!
