The Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes is a must see when visiting Toledo for its architectural, religious, and historical value. Built in the late 1400s-early 1500s, it was to be used as a mausoleum for King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella; however, they later chose to be buried in Granada. The monastery is grandiose, and in the gothic style.... More

This is an activity for those who enjoy things architectural, aesthetic, religious, cultural, and historical. It consists basically of two things: a church and a courtyard with two levels of cloisters around it. Only the church and cloisters are open to tourists; you can see the courtyard, but not access it. What makes it special, in part, is that it... More

This is a beautiful historical building. The two levels of Cloister are quite outstanding and the capricious gargoyles will provide much amusement.

We made a quick stop here. Mass was starting in 10 min so they told us to go there first. Drinks are not allowed inside (of course!) But instead of throwing away my coke- they offered to hold it for me. Very nice when you are in tourist town where drinks are well over priced!!

This Monastery, although might not be a major attraction, was amazingly beautiful architecturally, somehow reminded me of my elementary school. In my opinion, not to be missed.

The mix of architecture styles makes this monastery well worth visiting. The restoration job is excellent. Don't miss Gothic cloister with its Mudejar ceiling.

This is a particularly beautiful monastery. The attention to detail is amazing, the art breathtaking and the garden in the middle just beautiful. When there do not miss the chains of the freed former prisoners outside the building.
