We found out about this monastery through a website recommending sights in Toledo and feel so lucky we did! The monastery is located a little way on from the Jewish Quarter near St Martin's Bridge but for only €2.50 per person you get some beautiful views of a stunningly private and richly historical venue. An audio guide is available through... More

Very nice place to spend an hour at. Make sure to download their application on your phone and connect to their free Wi-Fi while at this attraction. The courtyard is very nice and has beautiful views of greenery. The cathedral is also very nice with some beautiful artwork. Is it a must? It's debatable but don't sacrifice going to the... More

Nice church but nothing compared to the cathedral. While walking through the town of Toledo, it is a nice place to stop by, but I was not impressed.

Pretty cloisters and beautiful garden at the center. The ceiling is pretty to and this is a quick hit if you want to see something.

While the exterior and interior are impressive the cloister is the real attraction. I found the interior dark and gloomy. But the cloister is bright and alive. The ceiling of the cloister's hallways is covered with beautifully hand carved wood. Don't forget your camera.

In common with many ‘old’ buildings in Toledo this one was extensively damaged during the Peninsular War as well as the Civil War so much of the building is fairly new although re-built exactly was it was before being damaged. It is a very beautiful building with the peace and tranquillity one would expect in a monastery. There are some... More

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!
