Our Shrine

Discalced Carmelites


The beauty of Mount Carmel and the spiritual traditions of this place are the reasons why in the thirteenth century our religious family is born in the Church. Surrounding peace and solitude, meditation on the Word of God and work are the values uniting the hermits of Carmel around Mary, their sister and mother. In the sixteenth century thanks to the efforts of Saint Teresa of Jesus and Saint John of the Cross, we focus on new aspects and a special tasks related to the teaching of prayer. Today we do it in various ways through: retreats, days of recollection, catechesis, scientific and publishing activities, running retreat homes, parishes and sanctuaries as well as missionary work.

In all of this, however, we are called above all to prayer which is life, and to teaching life to be a prayer!

Our Saints:

    Saint Teresa of Jesus

    Saint John of the Cross
