Convento de Santa Isabel de los Reyes in Toledo

The Convent de Santa Isabel de los Reyes in Toledo, which takes in the Palacios de Casarrubios
and Arroyomolinos, was established in 1477. This is not usually considered as one of the top sights in Toledo, but we believe it is an exceptional landmark for art and culture lovers.  The two palaces were given as a gift
to the convent by Isabella the Catholic. Preserved within are the Patio del Laurel,
which is modeled on the Alhambra, and a few rooms, such as the dormitorio de la
Reina (Queen’s bedroom). The courtyard of the sick-room, part of the Palacio
Arroyomolinos, dates from a later period but is also in Mudéjar style. Integrated into the
church is the former Parroquia de San Antolín, the Mudéjar apse of which survives.

The interior consists of a nave with a Gothic main chapel containing the tomb
of Doña Inés de Ayala. This was made of black and white marble in the second half
of the 15C. There is also a large Renaissance altarpiece of 1572.
