This monastery is one of my favorite places in Toledo. The courtyard is lovely and very peaceful. The monastery and architecture is a great example of the different cultures in Toledo.

Toledo beautiful though it is, sometimes with so much to see relating to religion it gets a little overkill and you think to yourself oh no not another beautiful building!

This is an underappreciated and beautiful late Gothic church and cloister. I enjoyed the walk from Plaza Zocovoder through the increasingly narrow streets to this wonderful building. The church is one of my favorite in Spain, both as the original intended burial place of the Catholic Kings, and because of the wonderful Gothic details. The church feels much more open and airy than most Gothic churches and the alter is marvelous. The cloister is very peaceful and green after the heat of a Toledo summer day.

Three friends and myself visited the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes in June 2011 and found it very interesting. The outside of the building was absolutely amazing.

Go here for the architecture! This is late Gothic, from the 16th c., and the abbey church has an immense space under vaults with intricate patterns. The adorments are very refined. You also visit the cloisters, with vaults and late-Gothic arches surrounding a garden. The visit doesn´t take long, but is definitely worth it for fans of Gothic architecture.
