The structure itself is very impressive and imposing. Its a massive church. We used the audio guides which gave lots of interesting information.

Sadly we missed the opportunity to see the inside of the cathedral due to Holy Week proceedings! The time posted online didn't match what was posted at the cathedral! 20 students were quite upset!

As the cathedral doesn't loom over the city like many, you can easily be standing next to it and unaware of the fact. Enter the building and your jaw will drop, for this is one of the greatest interiors in Spain. There are so many opulent side chapels, paintings, statues, etc. that one should leave at least two hours for... More

On a visit to Europe one can easily overload on Cathedral visits. Even so, this is one not to miss. A Gothic masterpiece filled with art by the masters, the huge gold and silver Monstrance of Arfe, a glorious Gothic altarpiece, original stained glass everywhere... and lots more. It's a lot to see in a single visit, so we'll probably... More

I knew almost nothing about the cathedral and was nonplussed by the 8 Euro admission charge. However, it was all well worth it and became the highlight of my Toledo trip. The architectural and artistic treasures in this place were overwhelming. The audio tour that comes with the admission price is very thoughtfully put together. Highly recommended.

What a beautiful site. Every inch of this site is draped in history, it's actually overwhelming. 8€ to get in. Toledo is such a magnificent little city.

Well worth a visit - would strongly recommend the audio guide which added a lot to the visit. Sacrasty contains one of the worlds great masterpieces - El Grecos ' Crucifiction of Christ' but plenty of other impressive works of art

I loved Toledo and bought a wristband at the plaza that included a tour of Cathedral. I would not recommend buying wristband to save money because it does not include entrance to the Greco Museum only a couple of churches whose entrance fees are a couple of euros anyhow. The tour was okay but neverless the history, altar, choir room... More
