San Juan de los Reyes, Toledo

In 1476, Queen Isabella founded the Franciscan monastery of San Juan de los Reyes in Toledo. The architecture of the noble, aiseless church with lateral chapels was deliberately toned down by the architect Juan Guas in order to bring out the fine detail of the decoration and the perfection of masonry.
