CARMUS. Carmelites Museum of Teresa de Jesus
In 1571 St Teresa founded the convent of the Anunciacion de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, where she died on October 4, 1582. She is buried in the center of a large altarpiece in a marble urn with the reliquaries of her heart and arm, which can be worshiped at the temple and from the Museum.
CARMUS turns around the Saint and her relics; it is divided into two niches located behind the retable. The high niche to which opens the alcove with the sepulchral urn, is -as devotional chapel- the center of the Museum and the hinge connecting the historical part of it with the area of the new floor.
It has paintings, sculpture, furniture, banners, liturgical ornaments, monastic objects, ceramics, silversmithing... More than 800 pieces that were in the enclosed convent and that are offered to pilgrims and scholars.
