Christmas Greetings– A little convent from Spain

spain-avila-st theresa convent
In Avila, a city walled in almost on all sides, I walk into a small shrine which was built on the home of the famous saint, St.Theresa. The 17th century convent , built after her canonisation is largely closed to public but it opens its doors to tourists who want to visit St Theresa’s chapel inside the Baroque church. We see scenes from her life, besides her relics – a finger from her right hand besides rosary beads among other things she used.

    Hi Lakshmi! Hope you are having a great season! Sorry for the absence, but 2012 was definitely a difficult year here in Portugal, and even worse for me…
    Wish you a very Happy 2013, and enjoy Grenada in Blogtrotter Two!

    So I see that you’ve been in Spain. Is that recent? Are you still in Spain? I hope you liked it.

    Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Regards from Barcelona.
