Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas, Toledo

(480+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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!!!
