The center of the monastery is a cloister encompassing 2 stories with delicate finishes and surrounding an Arabian Nights courtyard complete with orange trees and greenery. Monks still inhabit part of the building!

The church, cloisters, and other rooms in this monastery are lovely--as fine an example of Late Gothic as you'll see anywhere. The audio tour is decent, though a little dry at times. The admission price is reasonable as well. My only hangup with this building is that its claim to fame is that it was built by Fernando and Isabel... More

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!!
