Neighborhood: Centro

This pretty 17th-century church, which stands on the site of an old school belonging to the Carmelitas Descalzos (Barefoot Carmelite) order of nuns, is located in a big square close to the Plaza Mayor, among palaces and stately homes. The simple fa├žade is a copy of the church of Santa Teresa de Avila, and has the same kind of bell-towers. Inside, if you like baroque-style wood, you'll enjoy looking at the magnificent main altar, flanked by niches with valuable statues of Saint Teresa and Saint Joseph, from the 17th and 18th centuries respectively.
