Church of Saint Thomas the Elder: Overall view of facade on the Plaza de Italia
One of the numerous Romanesque sandstone parish churches in Avila. This church dates from the 12th century, and it was from this pulpit that Santa Teresa was castigated most vehemently for her reforms. It now serves as an annex to the Ávila Provincial Museum, showcasing some Roman foundation stones and a restored floor mosaic.
