Saint Teresa had lots of memories and childhood experiences from Gotarrendura. In this town, her parents got married, her siblings were born and her mother, Beatriz de Ahumada, passed away.
It survives today as a living and tangible reliquary, the dovecote of Santa Teresa, which she inherited from her maternal grandmother and to which she alludes in some of her letters.
Such was the imprint that this building marked on the life of St. Teresa that her new foundations were called “Palomarcitos”, by association of ideas in memory of the dovecote of her birthplace.
Today there is a statue with a pedestal, which stands on the place where the house stood in the 16th century.
At the entrance of the town, we are greeted by two works of sculpture and painting: a dove carved in stone and a mural commemorating the 5th Centenary of the birth of Teresa de Ahumada.
