  • Created by the Catholic monarchs as mortuary temple and in commemoration of the battle of Toro (1476), it is considered a masterpiece of the Gothic. The construction began in 1477. It has elements of the Elizabethan Gothic and Mudejar art. It was originally a Franciscan convent dedicated to San Juan Bautista, a devotion of Isabella of Castile.

  • It's a very beautiful church like many others in Spain and Europe. While beautiful, a couple things that just weren't for me were the audio guide, which was just toooo detailed. If you want to know wh...  more »
  • Very nice place to visit. Their single tickets are € 2.80, but you can take a wristband that costs €9 and includes you more monuments.

  • Maybe one of the most beautiful courtyards in Spain - stunning and protected by the birds by a giant net. There is a small fee for entry so take cash because the minimum transaction amount on card number is; of course higher than the entry fee. Considering I didn’t have cash and the nearest ATM is 20 minutes walk away, the lovely girl let me use my card
  • Beautiful! Really worth the visit! It's just a pity that only a few areas are open, but the price it's quite cheap so it's fair. Get the 9euros bracelet to have access to 7 monuments.. not all of them are masterpieces but overall it's worth it!
  • This one is worth the €2.80 entrance fee. With lovely classical music playing in the background, the garden in the middle, its en enjoyable visit. Lovely old monastery and church with great architecture.
  • Hidden gem in Toledo. Far from the main touristic attractions, but worth the walk. Magnificent example of flamboyant Gothic. Built by the Catholic Monarchs. Don't miss it if you happen to visit Toledo!!!
  • It’s hard to be a pretty church in a town with a world class cathedral. But it’s peaceful and serene and worth a visit. It’s a lot cheaper too.
