Karmel van Antwerpen

Heed the call of GOD and leave it all behind.


We are the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Antwerp,

founded by the

Bl. Anne of St. Bartholomew on November 6, 1612.

You can still find us in the original place where our cloister was first build in 1615.

The Archdukes Albrecht

and Isabella

laid the first stone of our primitive and small Chapel

on August 15, 1615.

Our cloister & garden


Ours is a family, a “little College of Christ”, which is centered on love for the Lord and ruled by sisterly charity, humility, generous evangelical self-denial and strict poverty.

Prayer is the first duty of a Carmelite

Our Holy Mother Saint Teresa of Jesus wanted a particular style of life to characterize the renewed Carmel where asceticism and mortification would be at the service of the Church in her great need, where a cordial, sisterly lifestyle of friendship and joyful recreations would balance with the eremitical way of life of the ancient hermits of the desert-a life of hidden union with God in silence and solitude.
