Iglesia y Convento Santa Teresa, Havana, Cuba Mar 15, 2017
Started in 1702 for the Carmelites the church and convent of Notre Senora de Belen and then Santa Teresa, was originally made to bring comfort to the children of the streets, when refused nourishment from other churches. 50 years later it changed its name and has stayed the same since as Maria Auxiliadora de los Cristianos. Although still in use it is mainly for novice nun training. Rather austere from the front it does have two lovely painted cupolas above the altar.
