Built in the 17th Century in a baroque style, this work of art is dedicated to the council of the city of Toledo.
It is also known as “the church of the Jesuits”. It was used to be called the Church of John the Baptist, but after the confiscation of Mendizábal, its name changed to San Ildefonso.
Here is buried the famous historian Juan de Mariana, also known as Padre Ripalba. The church has two towers that constitute one of the tallest buildings in Toledo. You can access them by climbing the steep and narrow stairs, which are worth the effort once you are up there.
We discover an impressive view that few places in Toledo can offer.
