Built over the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesús
The convent, inaugurated in 1636, was built on top of the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesús, and designed by the architect Fray Alonso de San José.
The Baroque facade of the church is interesting, as is the interior, with its Latin cross floor plan, the adjoining naves of which house magnificent sculptures by the master Gregorio Fernández.
