the Carmel

Interior parlors

Room where the Carmelites used to speak, that is to say came to meet people from the outside, behind two grilles and a curtain, which was opened by the Carmelites for the family. A Carmelite not affected by this visit attended the parlor: she was the "third", this companion that was given to a nun going to the parlor to listen to the conversations there. The third party is called upon to remain discreet.

We don't have a photo of this area, but we have an old watercolor.
