Our community was founded in 1648, more than 350 years ago. Since then there are always living some sisters (21 at the moment) from all different social classes after the model of St. Teresa, looking for God's love and the friendship with all humans.
We are part of the great family of the Carmel order (brothers, sisters and laities) which was founded in the 12th century on Mount Carmel in Palestine and rebuilt in 1562 in Avila by St. Teresa.
