Monument of Saint Theresa of Avila, on the Place of Saint Theresa, in the background Church of Saint Peter...
Saint Theresa of Ávila, also called Saint Theresa of Jesus, baptized as Teresa Sánchez de Cepeda y Ahumada, (March 28, 1515, at Gotarrendura (Ávila), Old Castile, Spain – October 4, 1582, at Alba de Tormes, Salamanca, Spain) was a prominent Spanish mystic, Carmelite nun, and writer of the Counter Reformation, and theologian of contemplative life through mental prayer. She was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered to be, along with John of the Cross, a founder of the Discalced Carmelites.
Forty years after her death, she was canonized, in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV, and in 1970 named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI. Her books, which include her autobiography, The Life of Teresa of Jesus, and her seminal work, El Castillo Interior (The Interior Castle), are integral part of the Spanish Renaissance literature as well as Christian mysticism and Christian meditation practices as she entails in her other important work Camino de Perfección (The Way of Perfection).

recently somebody was showing picks from Lisieux where the other St Theresa comes from so I am glad that you show now Avila.
Very impressive architecture. It is rare to see a woman on the column which is not St Mary.
Nice presentation, TFS

Buen colorido y buen encuadre de nuestra mas emblematica plaza.
El rojizo de las piedras de la iglesia romanica de San Pedro, la imagen de Santa Teresa y el cielo medio nublado hacen na muy buena combinacion.
