This monastery has a beautiful cloister. You have to walk down steps to pay your admission, then up steps to get to the cloister. (A handicapped elevator is available for one area). Church has a lot to do with King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. It is located at the western edge of town. There are signs to guide you there.

Interesting monastery built in the heart of the Jewish Quarter by Isabella and Ferdinand - in summer you may well catch a wedding here - again lovely cloister - this one on two levels

Simple and pretty! We saw three weddings there in one day! We had a good guide who explained everything, that made it a much fuller experience. Definitely recommend it!

I loved this monastery. It is cheap compared to most places, it provides Internet so you can access its official audio guide through your phone (that doesn't need a download), not to mention the beauty of the place. You should see it.

This working monastery has a grand history, beautiful architecture and important art work. Note that they have a free audio tour that is accessed via your cell phone via wifi. Bring you ear phones.

The church is beautiful and has a cloister that you need to pay to enter that much worth visiting (the price is not expensive approximately 2,5 euros ). The cloister has two floors, a beautiful garden and the second floor ceiling has a very interesting Mudejar style.

This is a special place and because it is a short distance from the other sights of Toledo it is little used by tourists. There is good information on the history and art of the monastery which has played a major part in the history over several centuries. Probably the best 2.5 Euros I spent during my stay.

Really enjoyed this place. The cloisters are amazing, the garden is magnificent. There is a chance of getting a audio guide on your smartphone device. It's free of charge and is really helpful in understanding main parts of the building. Overall, magnificent place!

A place to refresh from the outside world. Cloisters at ground and first floor via a beautiful staircase look on to a bueatful open air central patio. A worthwhile visit for those not in a rush.

Loved the cloisters ... both upper & lower. Nice staff at the desk, they called a cab for us to get back to the train station as my daughter hurt her ankle.
