My review is a little bias as we were lucky enough to attend the huge 12pm Easter Sunday mass in the high alter. The cathedral was the most amazing and beautiful I've seen and we've seen all the top ones in France and Italy. They sure know how to do Easter mass there as it nearly bought tears to my... More

This 700-odd years old building was constructed over some three centuries and, as a result, is a bit of a hotchpotch of styles. You can clearly see that at the main façade where magnificent arch of Puerta del Perdón is flanked on one side by the splendid tower and rather bland-looking Mozarabic chapel on the other. Still, the whole structure... More

I visited the Cathedral as part of an all day excursion from Madrid. The Cathedral was the best part of an overall excellent tour. I really enjoyed viewing the vast amount of craftsmanship, art and beauty in this grand scale Cathedral. The second of El Greco's famous masterpieces is not to be missed. Highly recommended if in historic Toledo.

Fascinating, both architecturally and historically. Artwork included as part of the cathedral tour is worthy of a very good museum collection. It is worth splurging for a private guide to lead you around this cathedral. We used Elena Perez (MEPRUIZ@TELEFONICA.NET) for a 3-hour Toledo tour, with the Cathedral tour using about half of our allotted time.

This Cathedral is well worth a visit, it's got some stunning features inside. It cost around 8 Euros each, they take a room key/passport/driving licence in return for the handset which was a surprise, you don't pay for it, it comes with the ticket. One of the best Cathedrals we've visited and a highlight in Toledo.

Toledo is the beautiful, former capital of old Spain and right there at its heart is the Cathedral. Over 500 years old, the gothic cathedral is home to some incredible artwork. An easy 1 hour south of Madrid, make time to spend a full day visiting the cathedral, walking the narrow streets, and sampling some wonderful food.

This is a very historic and impressive cathedral with a stunning golden alter and a beautiful choir. Architecturally, it has a skylight in the back behind the alter which illuminates that area -- very interesting seeing the streams of light in a darken environment. Also one should not miss the Treasury (which included many beautiful religious pieces including the monstrance)... More

The cathedral is part of this fascinating old city where you can simply walk in the narrow roads and alleyways and you can actually smell history... Lots of small shops selling swords and antiques... I would love to go back there again

Why not a perfect score you might ask? I have this thing about paying admission to a religious edifice. That said, the Toledo Cathedral is gorgeous. Perhaps the admission makes it possible to keep the place from being engorged by tourists incapable of appreciating its beauty. Go immediately to the high window in the back of the church. The sun's... More

This Cathedral is massive and the construction of it is hard to imagine. An impressive place of worship
