Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Castile-La Mancha / Province of Toledo / Toledo / Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas
A Jesuit cathedral, Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas was finally completed and now stands the same height as the nearby Alcázar Castle. In the wake of opposition by Cardinal Siliceo, it took over 150 years to build. The church bears the marks of having been designed by many different architects, with sculptures, reliefs, carvings, and columns representing each man's vision. All of them are equally well-crafted, but especially impressive is the central relief, "Imposition of the Chasuble,” depicting the church's namesake, San Ildefonso. Climb one of the two towers for a panoramic view of the city. Plan to see Iglesia de San Ildefonso Jesuitas and other attractions that appeal to you using our Toledo day trip website .

Where is the patron saint of Toledo, San Ildefonso, although the most interesting thing is the climb to the tower from which you see views of Toledo in practically 360 degrees. They are a few steps, but they climb quite well, because halfway you can visit an exhibition at the top of the ships. The final part of the ascent is worse if you have vertigo, but it's worth it.
It is one of seven attractions included in Pulsera Turistica (only 10 euro in total!). It was my favourite one. Lovely church and you have possibly to climb the tower, the view is stunning! Our guide ... more »
The inside of the church is not really impressive, artistically speaking. Despite the plant is large and the structure tall, typical of a major church, the artistic contents are not same level. Side chapels include baroque altars, wooden made. The true jewel of this church in the two 50m high towers. It is possible to go up. From there you can see a breathtaking landscape view of Toledo.
Loved it, such a beautiful church. We got there in the evening at pray time and there were just a few locals inside. Feel free to walk around and admire the art here.
