The 19th of March of 2002 the Nuns arrived to Jerez, all of us were afraid that with the abandon of our Cartuja in Jerez  by The Cartujos Monks. The building was going to finish as a ruin, but it was surprising when they arrived and got hold of it. Since then they have devoted their lives to pray, the maintenance of the building, the garden, their beautiful pottery and their handmade soaps made with lavander, almonds and other natural products


El 19 de marzo de 2002 llegaron a Jerez, todos temíamos que con el abandono por parte de los Cartujos de nuestra Cartuja de Jerez, el edificio acabaría en la ruina, pero sorprendentemente aparecieron ellas y se hicieron cargo, desde entonces se han dedicado a la oración, el mantenimiento del edificio, la huerta, su preciosa cerámica y sus jabones artesanales de Lavanda, almendras etc 




The handmade shop is  usually open and It's  attended by volunteers, yesterday we went to buy soaps for Christmas presents and It was closed, but suddenly, several volunteers from the food bank arrived and we had the opportunity of knowing to  three of the Nuns, they are charming and the short time we spend with them in that special and peacefull place was unbelivable



Normalmente la tienda de artesanía esta atendida por voluntarios, ayer fuimos a comprar jabones para regalos de Navidad y la tienda estaba cerrada,  pero llegaron voluntarios del banco de alimentos y tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer a tres de las Monjas, son encantadoras y el rato que estuvimos con ellas en aquel entorno fue increible
