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.
