Toledo should not be missed. Lots of history and beautiful structures. The Cathedral is not to be missed. It has a commanding view of the surrounding area as well.

Stay in the afternoon to see the sun go down and iluminated the water plaza in front of the Catedral. The Church is so beautiful, so many details, so many chapels inside. Enjoy with time.

Toledo is only 30 minutes by highspeed train from Madrid and ideal for a day trip. Regular buses serve the railway station up to the main square in town; the walk is a long uphill trek. Go early before the crowds. The cathedral is nothing spectacular from the outside but the interior is well worth the visit, even at 8... More

We did not go in because we visited on a Sunday, but the external design, appearance and architecture were simply awesome. It is one of the most detailed stonework exteriors than we have encountered in some time.

This is a stunning church with an incredible retablo – the intricate altarpiece covered in golden detail. The most remarkable part is El Transparente, a large skylight cut very high up into the wall across the ambulatory behind the high altar, and another hole cut into the back of the altarpiece to allow shafts of sunlight to strike the tabernacle.

A must visit if you are in Madrid. Breathtaking views from the hilltop. The walk around the little town is truly pleasant and beautiful. The cathedral is awesome and very grand and the walk through the Jewish quarters is awesome. Recommend to go there early as it gets really crowded by midday. Well worth visiting and one of my favourite... More

The Cathedral is very interesting and with some Gothic Archetetcture it makes an intoresting place to spend an hour or so. Unlike many you can take pictures as long as you do not use flash and there are many things to see, especially the 'window' at the far end (keep looking up). Toledo is a very old city and easily...
