Our last place to visit before heading back to Madrid, find it so amusing and saw it well preserved for us to see its historical value.

A train ride from Madrid for day trip
10/2019
One of our friends suggested we visit Avila and St Teresa's Church since we were in Madrid. I checked it out and found that it is only a 2 hr train ride so we booked a tour with our Travel Agent. We boarded the train in Madrid at Principe Pio - this is only station which has a train going to Avila. The train ride is approximately 2 hrs. The trip is rather enjoyable since you are going up into foothills and scenery is beautiful. When we arrived, our licensed tour guide met us and transported us via Taxi. The Taxi ride was approximately 10 minutes and we arrived at the main entrance and proceeded to the Convent. The convent is the first convent of Teresa which are Carmelites. There is a statue in the courtyard of St Teresa and we had our picture taken with it. The Church is active so went we visited a mass in Polish was being held so we couldn't really see it but proceeded the the Gift Shop and Chapel. The chapel is not very large so dependent on when you go, you may have to share with many others. We were lucky in that a group of +20 were just leaving and we had the chapel to ourselves - wife, tour guide and myself. The other area of chapel is a recreation of Teresa's room which is interesting. Upon exiting the chapel you can see some of Teresa's writings as well as relics from her and St John Vinney. To Non-Catholics, they may seem gross - they had a finger and other material from her and John but to us they have a special meaning and place in our beliefs. The gift shop doesn't gouge you with its prices. If you want to pick up something special, it is not expensive. We picked up a rosary out of rose petals for 10 euro's.

Well preserved 17th century Baroque exterior
10/2019
The Convento de Santa Teresa (Convent of St. Teresa) is the primary shrine of St. Teresa in Ávila. Located on the Plaza de la Santa, it stands over the site of Teresa's birth.
Unable to view anything other than the exterior as I happened to visit during the two hours, mid-afternoon, that everything was closed.

Another Great Avila Church and Convent
9/2019
This is another church worth seeing. The facade, nave and altars are nice but Santa Theresa's room in the convent is very cool.

Beautiful Exhibition in the Museum
7/2019 • Kaverit
This museum is for those people that love Saint Teresa. There are many manuscripts, paintings, letters, and relics.
The museum is just spectacular. It is worth the visit.

Close to Teresa
5/2019 • Kaverit
Free visit in the nice town of Avila. The church is built on the the place of the parental house. The church isnt very spectacular, but the chapel is beautiful. There is also a little room with her(?)bed. The little garden with a statue of a young Teresa.
In the giftshop you can see a her dairy, some belongings, like her walkingstick and a relic(finger bone).
The city is proud to be the birthplace of this saint.

Beautiful Church
4/2019 • Soolomatka
It was hard to believe that this place was also the birthplace of St Teresa. The structure was quite big for a house and just right for an intimate church. I find the church to quite beautiful and there was chapel at the back together with the room where St Teresa was born.
