We visited the convent and chapel where her tomb is located. It is 1 1/2 hrs north of Santiago in Rinconada near Los Andes. There was very little information available even in Spanish but from talking with a lady in the parking lot we discovered that the actual convent she lived in is in the town of Los Andes nearby. There were so many people coming to visit her tomb that someone donated this land to the carmelites so they could move the cloister and the tomb to this location.
