My son just moved to Toledo and he organized this museum visit. Charming guide who led us through the hospital which was first used for the poor and then military during Spanish Civil War. Tip: time it so you arrive for tour - ours was...More

This place is outside the city walls, on the way in if you are coming from the north. You can visit the courtyard, church and sacristy without a guide, but the museum and pharmacy is by special guided tour only. Beautiful tapestries, which unfortunately have...More

The museum is located outside the city walls, on the road leading directly across from the Bisagra Gate. Fortunately, it was close to our hotel (the NH Hesperia) so getting there was an easy post-breakfast stroll. We hadn’t realised that access to the interior was...More

Our expectations were set by the literature and the narration on the tourist bus. We were disappointed. The paid tour includes access to the archives, which are small, and the church, which, takes about 4 minutes to cover.

Used to be a poor people's hospital outside Toledo city walls now a museum. Well worth a visit very quiet, packed with amazing antiques and your own guide. The church has two actual el Greco paintings too

The highlight of this palace are the paintings by El Greco (inside the chapel); but don't miss the guided tour (included in the entrance fee) of the rest of the building. The library seems to be like taken out of a Harry Potter's movie (Hogwarts)....More
