Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas, Toledo

(4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
A Jesuit cathedral, Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas was finally completed and now stands the same height as the nearby Alcázar Castle. In the wake of opposition by Cardinal Siliceo, it took over 150 years to build. The church bears the marks of having been designed by many different architects, with sculptures, reliefs, carvings, and columns representing each man's vision. All of them are equally well-crafted, but especially impressive is the central relief, "Imposition of the Chasuble,” depicting the church's namesake, San Ildefonso. Climb one of the two towers for a panoramic view of the city. Make Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas part of your personalized Toledo itinerary using our Toledo itinerary builder.

  • Even if the chuch wasn't anything special to have the chance to go to the top is well worth the money. The church is nice and worth a visit but you're really paying for the view of Toledo. Absolutely ...  more »
  • This church in the heart of the city can boast of having the best views of Toledo. You can access the top of its two towers and certainly worth doing, because they stay stunned to see the city from there.

  • The church itself isnt interesting but you have the chance to go up to the tower to see this beautiful city from above! You will not regret walking all those stairs! (no elevator)  more »

  • Part of the Toledo tourism site deal. This was really the best of the 7 in my opinion. You can walk to the top of the church and oversee the whole city. Along with that the art on the inside is great.
  • Nice church. Maybe the best view from inside of the city. Entrance is 2,80 euros. No discount for students. Childern
  • It should be first place to visit. You can view whole town from two towers for just 2.5e
  • Great view from the towers. Prepare your legs!!!
  • Superb sky view of Toledo!!!
