  • The Hospital de Tavera, also known by Hospital "Outside", being situated outside the walls of Toledo and in a place where there was previously no building, belongs to the Foundation of the Ducal House of Medinaceli. It is the monument of TOLEDO more expensive of visit and with less attention by part of the staff of service: be charged two tickets of visit, one of €6, to visit the COURTYARD, the Church and SACRISTY, and another € 4 to visit the Museum and the HOSPITAL pharmacy. The building is monumental, it was built by its founder Cardinal Juan Pardo Tavera, planes and first directed by the architect Alonso Covarrubias (Toledano of Torrijos 1448 / 1570), who intervened also in the Cathedral, Chapel of the new monarchs, the Alcazar, the Santa Cruz Palace... Began to build in 1541, and its long, around 75 years, made much of its layout is changed. Its original design is a classic Renaissance, with cross-shaped plant-style hospitals created at the time of the Catholic monarchs. The patio is large, surrounded by a large cloister with two-storey Gallery. It is a space of paintings of Greco, worthy of a visit, and other paintings by Lucas Gior4diano, Carreño, etc, but not too many in number. in the sacristy there is a small Tabernacle, designed by el Greco with a central figure of the risen Christ (apparently the only existing in a full naked), not is should reach an agreement of price and not built for, put it in the center of the altar of the temple. In the Centre of the transept of the temple there is a magnificent sepulchre sculpted in marble by Berruguete Castilian, during his long stay in Toledo, the grave is dedicated to Cardinal Tavera.

  • Amazing. Good value for money
  • Unfortunately Ribera's "Bearded Woman" was not here for last seven years.
  • El greco. The risen christ.
  • Although they don't have as many visitors as the rest of Toledo (because they're less known), it's highly recommended.
  • Friendly. All very well maintained. Impressive two patios. Works by El Greco in the Church of the hospital
