This church dates back to the 17th century and is one of the purest examples of early baroque. It is said to be very ornate inside with many columns, plaster decorations and statues of the saints adorning the altars. I spent quite a long time in front of it as I was waiting for my husband to bring the car but didn't go in as there was another wedding ceremony taking place inside and the married couple were about to leave the church. As you see, Saturday is not the best time for visiting the churches. Also, for some reason, my mobile wasn't working so I didn't want Chris to have to look for me.
As the church stands close to and indeed is connected by a passage with the Gates of Dawn it was here that the miraculous image of the Virgin Mary was kept in times of trouble. The church belonged to the Discalced Carmelites, who were famous for brewing excellent beer and making candles. They also supported lay medical students and took care of the elderly and orphans.
It's very difficult to take a picture of the whole church as there is a house just opposite.
