A big Cathedral for a small city, the view from the hills is gorgeous. The Cathedral has a lot of pictures and sculptures, from El Greco to other famous pictures artists. All the investments for build this monument are from the people from Toledo, and from the region authorities. I have to pay 5.50 euro

This cathedral is magnificent and huge. It's one of the biggest reasons to go to Toledo, don't take a tour that doesn't take you inside the cathedral. Worth a visit and the audio-guide is good too.

We toured the cathedral with a guide who made the experience personal. The masterpieces were breathtaking and everything was in pristine condition. The crowds were large as the cathedral was being set up for a concert but we managed to see the entirety of a very large cathedral.

Very ornate cathedral tells to the visitors the time it was built. You can see the towers from many parts of the old Toledo. Nice place encrusted in small streets of this Middle age city. Paid guided tours. Just take a picture in the several parts of the cathedral.

spend a day or two wandering Toledo and wait until the organ from the amazing gothic church chimes at dusk. I swear, the shadows, the organ echo, it was from a batman movie. Very interesting town and church.

This place is so beautiful. One of the largest cathedrals I have been in outside of Rome. They don't like flash there. Go to the back and see the treasures they have, worth the entry fee. Several really nice shops in vicinity for great stuff.

True gothic cathedral with amazing el greco artwork and giant frescoes in the interior. The interior is amazingly beautiful and it's incredible to know that this magnificent cathedral is as old as it is.

Worth a quick visit to see the artwork and listen to the audio tour. The church and the museum are the top attractions to visit in Toledo.
