I though this was a very impressive building. On our first night in Toledo we walked into the town above the Monastery and there is a lovely scenic viewpoint looking down over it. It looked magical with the sun setting behind it. I thought that architecturally it looked just as wonderful the following day when we walked round it and went inside. The inner courtyard is lovely both on the ground level and from the upper tier - look for the animal gargoyles - there's a cat, a bird and a monkey. We spent about an hour here, inside the church and walking round the courtyard and taking photographs. The were a number of interesting things to look out for with explanatory plaques in both English and Spanish

This inexpensive visit to a delightful building is worth an hour or so. The inner courtyard is beautiful and the exterior has great views (and looks like Harry Potter!). Wish the library had been redone.

Predominantly gothic building with morish influence. The 2 tier courtyard is a luxurious oasis of tranquility.

Can't understand why everyone is so enamored by this place. Pleasant enough but nothing special. Very short visit as there is no real depth to the place.

Must see place in Toledo and entrance fee is reasonable. You can walk to most of the attractions in Toledo through its steep and narrow roads.
