  • Toledo is a city bélissima and the historic centre is very nice to walk, you can visit the city doing well early and getting the whole day in Toledo. The attractions are many, but you can visit many, because they are not so long. The Museum of the convent have peçås super beautiful and ancient, is not so big, which makes it easier.

  • It is a scam of visit. The price was 2.5 euros and not worth anything. There is nothing to do. It is simply a small church with an altar, 4 paintings that are neither del Greco and little else. On the floor and behind a glass of half a meter by half a meter, you sensed a small crypt there is a sarcophagus which supposedly told the nun who was the tomb of el Greco... I've wasted time watching this monastery, now I say unto you, there is nothing to do, is prettier on the outside to inside. In addition, the nun who claimed us entry was too much edge and never explained anything to us. The marzipan which lay for sale are very expensive, it is more, you can buy them at the grocery store that is a little later at less price. Simply, I felt cheated.
