Suite La Siervita

Suite La Siervita

This room consists of two bedrooms, an interior courtyard, kitchen, television room, bathroom and additional toilet.

It takes its name from the venerated Sister Maria de Jesus, better known as the Siervita (1643-1731). She was a nun of the Dominican order in the nearby Convent of Santa Catalina de Siena, where her incorrupt body can be visited on her feast day (every 15th February).

In the same Convent of Santa Catalina de Siena in La Laguna, you can find the “Museo de La Siervita” where you can find paintings of the nun and personal objects that were in her cell, such as a stone pillow, remains of the sheet she was wrapped in when she died and other curiosities, such as the board donated by Guadalupe González de Mesa which contains a cross with a missing arm and which the Siervita gave to Amaro Pargo, thanks to which she was able to work the miracle of calming a terrible storm. Other prodigies and miracles that surrounded her life are also attributed to her, including: stigmata, ecstasy, levitation, hyperthermia, clairvoyance and bilocation, among others, for which she is in the process of being beatified.

Captain Amaro Pargo had her as his spiritual advisor and attributed numerous miracles from his corsair exploits to the nun. It was Amaro Pargo himself who ordered her body to be exhumed and the miracle of her incorrupt body was discovered. He financed his spectacular sarcophagus, a work of craftsmanship made of carved and polychromed wood in red, blue and tinsel, with three keys that were to be kept by the Church, the Town Hall and the inheritors of the famous corsair.

In the decoration we highlight the kneeler and the religious and historical motifs that invite us to remember the figure of the servant with all the contemporary comforts. Two ferns hang from the inner courtyard on a charming terrace.

Nava Suites

Our establishment is an impressive eclectic-modernist mansion from the early 20th century built on the original construction of an 18th century Canarian mansion, where we find 10 suites with a unique history and personality each one of them. Its front, rich in neoclassical decorations, has one of the first Canarian iron balconies.

Our palace has an emblematic main courtyard decorated with plasterwork and iron columns, also surprising the visitors with the discovery of a bucolic back garden that will bring us closer to nature to the delight of our guests.

At Nava Suites you can also organise private events in its different facilities as well as hire any service that will make your stay an exceptional experience.
