San Juan de los Reyes Monastery

The monastery was commissioned from the architect Juan Guas by Ferdinand and Isabella, in thanks for the victory at Toro.

This is one of our favorite places in Toled0. The cloister has interesting gargoyles. The fact this monastery was built in just five years is simply amazing. Guas, the architect in charge, created one of the most beautiful examples of Spanish- Flemish Gothic architecture. The church consists of a single aisle with chapels along
the flank. The lavish interior is of interest. The altarpiece of the high altar is by the sculptor Felipe Bigarny and the painter Francisco de Comontes. The cloister has
two storeys. The pillars display 15C figures of saints. Note in particular the Mudéjar ceiling of the upper storey.
