About Peñaranda de Bracamonte...

Santa Teresa was also known as the Holy Wanderer, and it is in this fact that her relationship with Peñaranda de Bracamonte is sustained.

On the trip to the foundation of Salamanca, in October 1570, Teresa passed through this town. She arrived at the town sick and stayed that night at the house of D. Juan de Bracamonte and his wife. From there she continued the next day to Salamanca, as she herself recounts:


“We arrived (in Salamanca) on the eve of All Saints, having traveled the road the night before was very cold, and slept there while I was very ill”.

(Teresa de Jesus, Foundations, 18,3)

On other trips to Salamanca, in 1571 and 1573, and on the last trip of her life, in September 1582, Teresa also passed near Peñaranda.


At the time in which the Saint lived, our town didn’t have a religious order. A century later, one of its most distinguished devotees from Peñaranda, Don Gaspar de Bracamonte y Guzmán, decides to found a convent of Discalced Carmelite nuns, and donates an extensive collection of both pictorial and sculptural art to its residents.
