Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas, Toledo

4.3
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 itself does not have much, but the towers offer one of the best aerial views of the city

    We visited this church because we had spoken of its spectacular views of Toledo and they do not disappoint, this church is also included in the visits by tourist bracelet. The ascent is not complicated or long.

  • 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!!!

Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.
