The Tower of San Cipriano

The parish church of San Cipriano, also called San Cebrián, was one of the first churches built in Toledo. It is located next to the temple side (nave of the Evangelio) and is now attached to the two aforesaid expansions. Its original free standing construction was similar to that used for Umayyad minarets.

The tower has a square base with three different structures. Firstly, there is the top masonry body with brick rows and corners. Each face has a pointed round arch framed with a typical Moorish panel, used to illuminate the stairs. On this section of the body, we can see a frame between two impost with decorated multiple-lobed closed arches, wich used to be partially visible after part of the plasterwork had fallen.
