A Sunday Afternoon in the ByWard Market (Ottawa)

Secret Rosarios

The lively Barrio Santa Cruz district of Sevilla thrives with tourists, leafy orange trees, a web of tangled streets, old world ambiance architecture and… secret cloisters! We knew they existed, and we tried to find some in Madrid, but alas, either the timing wasn’t right or we didn’t have the right password. This time, however, we found what we were looking for. Behind the impressive front gate of the Augustinian convent, in a dark corner, is a grand old wooden torno (lazy Susan) where your money gets magically replaced by sweet treats or (if you are quick enough and fluent enough to ask)… a consecrated rosary. And rosarios we received! Two rosaries from cloistered nuns who will find their way to my parents-in-law :). To a peaceful and prosperous future!

Stay tuned for more on Sevilla and our Cordoba side-trip.

Buen dia!
