the Carmel

Staircase of the Saint-Elie dormitory

Staircase that Thérèse made sadly famous, telling Marie de la Trinité that it had taken her more than half an hour to climb up to her cell; she was forced to sit down on almost every step of the stairs.


The base of the staircase and to the left the door leading to the cloister.

You can also see in the background the statue of Saint Anne and the Virgin Mary.
