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

This 16C Renaissance building has a large columned courtyard and the buildings house painting by Titian, Tintoretto, El Greco, and some stunning tapestries! The old pharmacy has a large collection of Talavera ceramic containers. Allow 90 to 20 minutes to get the full feel of...More

A grand building which was once a free hospital for all as also at times a family home. The Chapel, library and Pharmacy are interesting also. Not to be missed when in Toledo.

While you are in Toledo it is worth to take the guided tour and visit this place. The hospital is turned to a museum for the mid centuries era.
