Create an itinerary including 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.

  • It is a large baroque church. Very attentive employees. Inside the church, several side chapels. Stairs lead to the bell tower, from which you can admire the beautiful panorama of Toledo. The views...

  • Is it worth the trouble and entry fee to see the view. That too of cramped quarters. Definitely no !

  • Lovely church with a tower that's worth a visit. Be aware that the church tower has 131 steps to the top, but the view is nice. The cathedral tower was closed when I visited so to this was a welcome option. The admission is cheap too.
  • Amazing view from the towers. Nice climb, no elevators. Worth every step!
