For 3 Euros this church is well worth a visit if only to climb the 130 odd steps for the wonderful views of the Alcazar and the cathedral. It is also worth spending some time to enjoy this quiet church.

This was a lovely church that was very different than any of the other churches we visited. It has a tower that you can climb and have the most beautiful view of the city. A great picture taking opportunity that can't be missed. Its also only about 3 euros so it was well worth it.

The church is beautiful and then you walk up the stairs and you have a panoramic view of the city..costs 2.50 euro but it was definitely worth it!

My visit to this place was really just for the view of the city. It is not to be missed! The church was charming and quaint. I admired it for it's simplicity in comparison to the other churches that I entered. Then, of course, it has the best view of the city from its towers. You have to climb several... More

Very gaudy interior, but undeniably pretty. Would have been surprised to find a Coke machine in a church if Lonely Planet hadn't warned me. Highlight was the views of the town from the tower. Stairs up and down are separate, a big plus, and it's a pretty moderate climb -- not on the typical windy old narrow staircases of many... More

Best view in Toledo and we tried several. The panoramas are not obstructed and the observation tower appears to be the highest point that the average tourist can ascend. The church as well is delightful ... Bright and with some excellent art work and architecture.

A litlle bit hidden church with great view over Toledo (including Cathedral of Toledo). For the price excellent value.

Beautiful church in Toledo, where for only €2.50 you can visit and climb to the top of the two towers at the front of the building for great views across Toledo and the Spanish countryside. Thoroughly recommended.

As many have noted, the towers provide an excellent view of the Toledo area. No elevator so you will need to climb the stairs. The climb is not bad unless you have major difficulties with stair climbing. The church reflects a 17th-18th century style, much like St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, but seems modern compared to other Toledo churches.... More

This church in the center of Toledo is worth a visit. Certainly because you can climb up into the tower. From where one has a good view over the old town of Toledo. Good for some interesting pictures. The best vista in town. The climb up is not that difficult since excellent new metal staircases have been installed. Separate up... More
