  • In the midst of the busy streets of Toledo, the Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes offers a beautiful and fresh haven of peace.  more »
  • For a small fee, one can gain access. But definitely not a must see as walk to and from is immense !  more »
  • Beautiful architecture. We were here at night, so didn't get a chance to enter, but it was still a sight to behold, and very well lit... Also, lots of little bats flying around outside at night, which was fun to see. The bats don't bother people if you don't bother them. They're just busy catching all the insects that fly around and are drawn to the spotlights used to illuminate the landmarks.
  • Splendid visual experience! A must see in Toledo. Probably the most beautiful monastery I have seen in my life.
