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. Plan to see Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas and other attractions that appeal to you using our Toledo day trip website .

  • Located in a "high" area of Toledo, next to the Museo de los Concilios; I liked more the great baroque facade of the 17TH and the high twin towers (from atop great view of the city) than the interior, a single nave with side chapels adjoining, conjunto set (again, for my taste) too white (except for the color of the) Reliquary) and too "impersonal" (the truth is that the "Jesuit"model of temples is rather repetitive). The cruise is already the 18th. Beautiful altarpieces and painting of the imposition of the chasuble to San Ildefonso to the Virgin. The entrance costs 2.80 euros (2.40 the reduced, retirees, etc.).

  • If anything a but. To seal the bracelet of Toledo, it must be up to the second floor and is uncomfortable for most people. Then there are the officials. 15 minutes before the hour are already closing down...

  • The rating of 'excellent' is precisely why. The ascent to the twin towers (131 steps) provides us with an incomparable panorama of old; better, certainly, than the Tower of the Cathedral. Only that already our visit is worth plenty. Moreover, the dimensions and the purity of the great Jesuit ship lines, added one more reason for us to visit the second largest city Catholic Temple.

  • Awesome visit!! Toledo from its roofs it's wonderful. Get the bracelet for 9 euros you can access quite a few monuments. Most of them are not masterpieces but worth a quick visit..
  • It locates in the beautiful Toledo. If you step onto top of the bell tower, the view is so spectacular that can take your breath away.
  • This is the best church to visit in Toledo - primarily you get the most value for your money and it’s not as busy as the other hotspots. An easy climb of the church’s tower will give you the best views of the cathedral and alcazar on the horizon. The church also has a whole collection of beautiful golden deus’.
  • Pop in the front door and walk toward the ticket counter. Stop and look around. You just saw everything there is - for free.
  • Really nice church, clean, white, and simple. If you want a really nice view of Toledo forget about the cathedral tower, and pop-over to this one. At €2.80 it's a bargain as well! You get a really nice view of the cathedral and other landmarks of Toledo from this tower, and when I attended there wasn't really many tourists about.
