Beautiful cathedral and we got admission that covered all of the varying religious sites there. I recommend you take time to view this attraction and if you can climb the steps up to tower. Great view of Toledo . I'm glad we visited the city on way back to Madrid . It is about an hours drive back into Madrid... More

This place of worship is amazing, there is so much art, the ceilings are beautifully decorated, I got a stiff neck. The admission charge is reasonable, considering the articulate audio tour that comes with the admission fee. It is also lovely to cool off in the cool interior. Give yourself plenty of time, definitely worth a visit

Huge. Impressive in the 21st century so goodness knows what they thought back then. Lots of interesting features that were explained by our guide (before he rushed off to the next bus). Take your time and stroll around the cloister, which is far cooler than the oppressive heat inside the cathedral and some of the rooms.

Don't miss it. I've seen many cathedrals but this was the most impressive. The architecture, the decoration, the history. Breathtaking.

This is the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen (so far in my life). The interior is awesome, very ornate and beautifully structured. The high altar is finely sculpted with so much gold leaf that it seems to glow. There is also a gorgeous skylight. Don't miss it. I was amazed by the size of the cathedral. We had... More

I do not like to be asked to pay an ¨entrance fee¨ for religious monuments unless it is on a donation basis but this cathedral is worth the effort. Allow plenty of time to see all once you are in.

Having visited most of the major cathedrals in Europe, the Toledo Cathedral is without a doubt one of the finest cathedrals in Spain if not in Europe! The splendor of the interior is breath-taking and the audio tour was very informative. This is a definite "must-see" destination when in Toledo.

Huge. If you're interested in history, you could spend hours here. Cost 11 euros per person to enter, a major business in Toledo, not necessarily a spiritual experience. Fantastic paintings & statues by El Greco & others.

While this is not the biggest or the grandest cathedral you'd ever seen, it is easily one of the most beautifully-decorated and finely-sculpted. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audio guide and admiring the breathtaking interior designs of the Cathedral.

Incredible architecture! The size of the cathedral and craftsmanship are spectacular. My biggest frustration was my headset for the self guided tour didn't work well so I finally just turned it off and walked around on my own. Should have gone back and switched it for one that worked because I missed a lot. Truly amazing. A must see!
