Convento de Santa Teresa: Convento de St. Theresa, Ávila, España

Convento de St. Theresa, Ávila, España

The Convent of St. Teresa is one of two main destinations for Catholic pilgrims to Ávila. The 17th-century convent was built after the canonization of St. Teresa (1515-82) over the house where she was born. It contains her relics, along with those of her friend St. John of the Cross, in a small museum.
