Medieval Spanish architecture at its prettiest - the Monastery has been well preserved after centuries of service. We did not go inside, but the outside is impressive enough. The baroque decorations border on Rococo-style excess. It's also quite large, especially considering that it was built...More

Short visit, less than 30 minutes. But it is well kept and interesting. The Claustro is a masterpiece.

Just when you think you have seen the most beautiful , intricate building, there is another marvel. Worth a visit if you are in Toledo

Like all the buildings in Toledo, this is a truly stunning piece of architecture. If you have time to pop past this building and have a look it is quite enjoyable, however, the Cathedral is instead more important to see.

This is definitely worth a quick stop. It isn't as grand as the cathedral but the cloister is pretty and the Gothic architecture was cool.

The architecture had a garden with orchards in the middle and was amazing. The church and meditation rooms took us back centuries.

It's a very beautiful church like many others in Spain and Europe. While beautiful, a couple things that just weren't for me were the audio guide, which was just toooo detailed. If you want to know what seemed like the every single thing you could...More

take the RENFE AVE train - gets you to Toledo in 30 minutes - however the train station is chaotic if you don't know Spanish. It is straightforward and the beauty of the place and the panoramic view point is just fulfilling experience. They do...More

Simple quiet chapel that was supposed to be the resting place of the Catholic monarchs with an awe-inspiring 2-story courtyard with beautifully colored wood ceilings, filigreed arches and gargoyles hanging out from the upper level. Definitely worth a visit.

Stopped here first. The monastery is small but plenty to see. The cloisters are gorgeous with great art on the ceilings. Again buy the wristband for 9 euros and see all the historic sites of Toledo minus alcazar and cathedral

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.
