The Avila of Sta. Teresa

The history of Ávila is closely linked to Santa Teresa and San Juan de la Cruz. Santa Teresa is renowned for her writings in La Morada and San Juan de la Cruz, also from Ávila, is known worldwide for having taken Spanish mystical poetry to its highest level.

No-one is more deeply-rooted with the Christian culture in Ávila than Santa Teresa. Recognised universally as a historic figure, she leaves this city with a mystical legacy as the unforgettable memory of her Carmelite reform campaign. Her mark can be found in places such as the Convento de Santa Teresa, a convent built in 1636 over her birthplace. Many other monuments allude to the Saint's life such as the Palace de Núñez Vela, the Church of San Juan where her baptismal fountain is kept and the Monastery of Santa María de Gracia. The Convent of La Encarnación and the Convent of San José are the two most emblematic buildings with regards to the life of the saint.
