Wednesday, August 24, Day 7:

    In the morning we will visit the Shrine of St. Teresa of Avila in the town of the same name. We will visit the convent of the Incarnation, where St. Teresa took her vows as a Calced Carmelite and spent a total of 27 years, once serving as prioress. It is at the Incarnation that Teresa formed the idea to start her reform of the Carmelites. We will visit the nearby convent of St. Joseph in Avila, the first of the houses of Discalced Carmelites the saint founded. Time permitting, we will visit some of the places that figured in St. Teresa's life in Avila: the convent of Our Lady of Grace, where she was a student; the church of San Pedro in the Plaza de Santa Teresa, and possibly the chapel at the convent of St. Thomas. Overnight in Segovia/Avila.

Thursday, August 25, Day 8:

    After breakfast we will travel to Medina de Campo where St. Teresa met St. John of the Cross and Antonio of Jesus, who were to become the first friars to join her reform. Here, in the Calle de Santiago, near Antonio's priory, Teresa founded another of the houses of the reform. If possible, we will visit sites connected to the life of St. John of the Cross, who grew up in Medina del Campo, which was a prosperous market town during the saint's life. After lunch we will travel to Alba de Tormes, the seat of one of St. Teresa's powerful patrons, the Duke of Alba. It was here that St. Teresa founded one of her favorite houses near the Tormes river, and it was here that the saint died and was first buried. Relics of the saint still reside in the convent church. Overnight in Segovia/Avila.

Friday, August 26, Day 9:

    In the morning we again follow St. Teresa’s footsteps, to Toledo, the town of her father, who was called El Toledano. St. Teresa first came here as a guest at the Cerda palace, where she was asked to console the grieving Dona Luisa, who became her friend and patroness. St. Teresa later founded a discalced house in Toledo, and it was here that she composed most of her classic work on mystical prayer, Interior Castle. It was also here that St. John of the Cross was imprisoned by the Calced Carmelites for eight months, during which they tried to force him to renounce Teresa's reform. The city also houses much of the finest work of El Greco, a contemporary of St. Teresa. Time permitting, we will visit the churches and other buildings decorated by the master's work. Overnight in Segovia/Avila.

Saturday, August 27, Day 10:

    We go to Escorial, the massive mausoleum/library built by King Philip II, whom St. Teresa always referred to as her friend. Certain manuscripts of the Saint's writings are preserved at the Escorial. After lunch we will visit Valle de Los Caidos. Overnight in Segovia /Avila.

We will walk in the footsteps of the Child Jesus, and see the cell where Our Lady appeared with Her Son. We will be staying overnight in Tuy.

Tuesday, August 30, Day 13:

    We go to Santiago, where we will visit the Tomb of St. James in the magnificent 1,000-year-old Cathedral. We will then continue our journey to Rianjo, where Jesus prophesied the dangers facing our Bishops today, because Russia has not been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart. Overnight in Tuy.
