‪The holy relic of St. Teresa of Jesus ...‬
מרץ 2019
‪The beautiful "Iglesia y Convento de Nuestra Señora de la Merced" dates from the 16th century and belongs to the Order of the Discalced Carmelites. It was built after the "Reconquista" and has mannerist and mudéjar characteristics. Its importance to Roman Catholics is due to the fact that the church is the custodian of an extremely venerated holy relic - "the incorruptible hand of St. Teresa of Jesus". Unmissable! And remember, "Alameda del Tajo" and "Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Ronda" are just a few steps away. Enjoy!‬

‪Handy for Franco at Least‬
זוגות • אפר׳ 2019
‪If you walk up the hill past the Bullring and the entrance to the Alameda del Tajo you will soon be confronted by a wide flight of stone steps. These lead you up to the commanding entrance of the Church of Our Lady of the Merced and the Convent of the Descalced Carmelitas has its entrance around the left hand side of the building.
Originally, the convent was home to the Order of Mercedarians, but some time later it was occupied by the Descalced Carmelites. They had acquired a holy relic, the incorruptible hand of Saint Teresa of Avila, this then found its home at the Ronda Convent of Carmelites.

After the civil war, General Franco, who was a devout Catholic, seized the incorruptible hand and, so the rumour goes, kept the relic in his sleeping quarters for all of the time that he ruled Spain. After his death the Carmelites of Ronda requested its return and on January 21st 1976 the relic was returned. Needless to say, great celebrations ensued.

Wheelchair users will be glad to make use of a ramp up the side of the steps to the front of the church.

Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.‬

‪Lovely looking church‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2018
‪The exterior of this church glowed in the sunlight and I just had to take a photo of it. Unfortunately there was an old battered van parkled outside it and no matter how I tried I couldn't get a decent photo of the church without the van spoilng it.‬

‪Iglesias de la Merced is not accessible at all times but when it's open there is FREE entry. If someone asks for entry fee don't pay, but you can still go in. Also, go beside the church (out then right, right) at the end of the yard there is a door, go in and at the turnstile ask to see st Teresa 's hand. Again, opening hours are in effect.‬

‪It's a church ‬
זוגות • יולי 2017
‪Not the most beautiful church we've ever seen (we've seen a lot over Europe), not worth paying to go into. But very lovely from the outside and has some decent views. ‬

‪Church of Saint Mary‬
לבד • מאי 2017
‪Constructed in the 1200s, this mélange of architectural styles is actually built upon the foundation of mosque that had been there, since after the Moorish conquest of 711AD. The Islamic mihrab remains. Gothic dominates the architectural style and consists of three naves. The diaphanous space created by the wide arches enhances the visual space. Architectural modifications continue until the 1600s, thus the architectural ambiguity. After visiting incredible cathedrals in Madrid, Toledo, and Sevilla, this somewhat reminded me of Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).‬
