  • There is little to see inside the monastery apart from the inner garden and beautiful architecture. The Church attached to the monastery is worth a visit for, among other things, its decoration.

You can visit for an entrance ticket € 2.50 but there is also a combined ticket of € 9 with whom visit these monuments 7: San Juan de los Reyes, Santo Tomé, Santa María la Blanca synagogue, the Church of El Salvador, the Jesuit church, the Mezquita del Cristo de la Luz and the Real Colegio de Doncellas Nobles.

  • Beautiful! 2.5€ the ticket, I'm happy I went there! Sculptures, garden with orange tree, this place is so peaceful.
  • Church is quite small with spectacular interior. You may spend 15 minutes inside only, but a bit of walk from city centre.
  • Cloisters on two floors with some ornate ceiling and wall decorations. Well worth the visit if you have a Toledo Card :)
  • Very big and impressive
  • Really stunning and worth the €2,50 ticket!
