Overview

Construction on this building began around 1830 when Cardinal Inguanzo was Archbishop of Toledo. After his death, work on the building came to a halt, and another Archbishop, Cardinal Paya, would later decide to recommence the work, completing its construction in 1886. It's not of great architectural value, as such, but it is of enormous historical importance in Toledo, because it's close to San Andres church and it is where seminary students from all over Spain came to study at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1936 it caught fire, and was in time restored to its original condition with help from the government. Visitors are not admitted, as it is a private institution.
