Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas, Toledo

(4.4/5 based on 440+ 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 very interesting but it best is them impressive views of the city of Toledo that is can see from their towers and whose access is fairly accessible

  • Beautiful Jesuit church, with a large central nave and two side with several chapels. Is all painted in white, and has much small niches with sculptures of Saints. A beautiful dome above the Altar, which has very nice frescoes and marble. You can access the towers and choir. The towers offer beautiful view of Toledo, highlighting the Primada Cathedral and the Alcázar. Go up stairs and is not tiring, but if you have vertigo not I recommend them because they are not closed but in the Middle have a large space and the protective grating are not high, I spent a hard time to power down and there was no one. I went with tourist bracelet covering seven monuments

  • The Church is nice, but neither has uneventfully. If that is very recommendable to climb the towers to enjoy a beautiful view of Toledo.

  • 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.
