My wife and I ended up buying the "tourist bracelet" for 9eur in Toledo (7 places) which was worth it given most places are 3eur a visit. So we went and did all the places. The monastery was one of the highlights of the trip....More

Beautiful cloisters and garden make this a nice attraction on the edge of the tourist area. We went on walking and promptly got lost, so just turn around and go on back up the hill if you don't want to waste an hour.

Quite a simple place to look around with a lovely cloister. Not expensive to visit either. No audio guide but you wouldn't be there long enough to justify one anyway.

The best thing about the monastery is the courtyard. There is a small admission fee to see the monastery and the courtyard. We spent less than 1/2 hour at the monastery. DISAPPOINTED

This monastery has the finest stucco work I’ve ever seen. It really is stunning in every respect. It’s small enough to see in 30 minutes, but it really will take your breath away.

Beautiful and charming little monastery with a beautiful garden. It won't take long to finish seeing the place (it is not that big), but it is definitely worth a visit if you love architecture and art.

This visit is splited between the cloister and the church, which is open since 2pm. There is a mix between old structures and new decoration because a fire in 1808, but the place is still amazing and very well restaured. Entrance costs 2.80 euros but...More

This is one of the oddest monasteries I've ever seen. It is absolutely resplendent in royal/military symbols/heraldry. As it was used by the royal family as a meeting place, it really doesn't seem terribly religious. It's in excellent condition and has some very nice gargoyles...More

We didn’t see any taxi area near the Monastery. It is a pleasant, short walk back to the Plaza. There is a lot to see on the walk back too. The walk back is mostly downhill.

We bought the multiple sight ticket for 6 or 7 Euros. Worth it if you are going to all the sites on the tickrt as it will save you a few Euros.
