  • This was a surprisingly beautiful stop in Toledo. The exterior is quite lovely with its Gothic details. The cloister is a nice space, especially the upper level, which has beautiful wooden ceilings...

  • So much history here but not presented to the non Spanish visitor. There is an arrogance with the sights in Toledo that does not endear them to the visitor. They are happy to take your money but...

  • Historic preservation while still working monestary. Beautiful sculptured walls and ceilings. A must to see how the monarchs spent public money.

  • Gorgeous 15th century gothic architecture! I would recommend purchasing a €12 wrist band that includes entry to all 7 biggest sights in Toledo. This building has 2 tiers however, it’s very big so I would recommend visiting it at its opening hours to avoid tourists and visitors so you can take beautiful pictures.
  • Excellent free audio guide, QR code available right inside the cloisters. I didn't work for a few of the commentaries, but the ones I heard were interesting an enjoyable. The cloisters and church are full of beautiful details, well worth a look.
  • Wonderful old monastery. Although it is a bit far from the center of Toledo, it is worth visiting. The ticket was quite reasonable, only 3 euro per an adult.
  • Classic architecture of a monastery from thy period. The cloister and center garden area are breathtaking.
  • Great place to visit while in Toledo. It's at the end of town so it was less crowded.
