A tragic history to the building or more the Jesuits who built it. An enormous and beautifully detailed altar and some interesting architecture. Lets face it - most people go here for the views over the city and you will not be disappointed. Can get a bit crowded up there and found it was a little better later in the day. 2.50 Euro entry and I went twice! :)
No lift and the staircase up the inside of the towers is literally bolted to the open wall - so if you have vertigo, you may wish to go with a friend!

I stumble upon this church while walking along the numerous alleys and paths in toledo. Love the exterilr architecture so decided to explore more of it.
You pay 2.50 euro in order to climb the up the tower for a bird eye view of toledo. It was certsinly worth it due to the excellent views of the city, you can see most of the landmarks eg cathedral etc..
Dont miss this little gem, its a good thing it is not very crowded as well.

It was beautiful and very Rococo. Make sure you visit the cathedral first as it takes at least an hour and is just down the road from this church. This church is not for the dizzy or faint hearted if you want to see the views over Toledo. The climb up is quite something and worth it, without a doubt.

You have to pay to visit the church and you can't take pic.!!! Then you pay a ticket for going up the towers where you can take a look of the city from a durty narrow space. The church itself has very little to offer, it was pillaged many years ago, it ugly and durty.
The staff is rude and disagreeable.
