Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes Reviews
Impresiona tanto por fuera por dentro. Mandado construir por los Reyes Católicos, en un principio para que allí reposaran sus restos. La iglesia por dentro es muy bonita y el claustro lo mismo. more »It impresses so much on the inside. Commanded to build by the Catholic Monarchs, initially so that their remains rest there. The church inside is very nice and the cloister the same.
Enjoyed learning the history of the monastary. Beautiful small church. Does not take long to see everything 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.
