Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas, Toledo
(4.4/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • The Church is beautiful and restored, though perhaps too... how "clean" and new appearance. But it has its attractions: the altar, dome, mini attached hood and access to the upper level and climb the towers, even if fear of stairs... I wish we had rains have both because it spoiled us good views from above. It is recommended to visit it.

  • The views, excellent, the access to the towers not both. He last stretch are stairs hollow, not very suitable for those who suffer something of vertigo, to the pass of tower to Tower occurs it same. The input are 2.5 euros, taking in has that charge entry in almost every site, is possible that it best is take the bracelet tourist. The Church is very well maintained. Better understand its history to enjoy it more.

  • fantastic view of Toledo from its towers, recommended
  • excellent views from the towers, definitely worth it
  • The Perfect View of TOLEDO. You will regret if you missed the site.
  • Beautiful point of view and nice church !
  • The issue is the following: you walk through the door, go 5 meters and half Church have vista. In that moment you realize there is a cord and a man at a table charging input (2.5 €) and wonder really?. At that point you realize counts that you are ripping, there are 2000 churches in Spain free access and you will not pay to see this. And how you are first and foremost a gentleman you suppress the urge to take a picture, you shouldn't be rude or cheeky, but kindly give you return and sales where you came.
