Lovely cloisters

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.

I came back to Toledo after a long period with a main purpose to see again the Cathedral. Unfortunately it was a day not opened to the public, so we had to fill in the time with other touristic points of attraction. We stumbled over this monastery just by chance and weren't decided to enter at the beginning, but it... More

Church and cloisters are very beautiful, it is a must visit when you come here. The church is beautiful, don't forget to look for the chains on the outside of the church! Very peaceful, worth the 2.50 euro price

This is one of two landmarks that are not in the center of historic Toledo, so people tend to bypass it. This landmark is worth the detour. As you walk into the monument you are not impressed, but as you enter the actual chapel and the cloister, they take your breath away. The chapel is dedicated to the Catholic King... More

Very nice Gothic church with a beautiful cloister and garden. There are many stone columns masterfully worked and decorated. Also the ticket is very cheap (2.5 €). If you are in Toledo it is recommended to visit this place.

If you are passing by the Monastery, it is certainly worth the 2.5 euros admission, but I would not detour to see the site. There is not much here. If you so stop by, the cloister is worth strolling through on both floors.

This might not be a popular attraction due to its distance from the other attractions and main squares, but it is definitely worth a visit if you are in Toledo. The architecture is an eclectic mix of styles, and the audio guide (which is actually accessible online through the wifi available in the monastery) helpfully informs you of all the... More

The monastery dates to the 15th Century. It was commissioned to honor victory in the Battle of Toro in 1476, over the rightful succession to the throne. The two-level cloister here is wonderful mix of Gothic on the lower level & Mudejar on the second level. There are some nice frescos & stone carvings along the aisles of the cloister... More

Don't miss this monastery. The church is worth visiting, but the main attraction is the beautiful cloister, certainly a highlight of Toledo. (Take your time an look at the many sculptures on the walls of the cloister: Medieval builders often had an interesting sense of humor.) The whole place is like an oasis in an otherwise touristy town.
