ideally, visit this with guided tour as this is the way to see and understand lots of details; this place is full of history and just walking in gives you 20% of overall experience...

They enabled us to turn on wifi, go into a particular website and have a listing of 20 places in the mobsters to listen to commentary. Great idea. Never saw this before. Interesting gardens and wonderful art and architecture inside. Worthwhile visit.

It will not take you much time, but you should be there if you are in Toledo. Inner yard in mudejar style with very interesting stone work. The main church is also beautiful. Don't forget to explore the monastery wall with chains and viewpoint.

History to be seen. Your visit will not be a disappointment. I did find that Toledo was pricier than other cities to view its history.

Even more than the cathedral this felt like a place of worship. There are areas of striking beauty and architecture, but with the cloister garden and balcony it is a place for contemplation and peace.

This is worth a visit in Toledo, it's got a lovely chapel inside, as well as beautiful cloister. It only cost 3 Euros.

This Franciscan church was founded by Ferdinand and Isabel in 1476. Later partly destroyed in the Napoleonic wars. Later restored. Note the Franciscan Cord all around the church. The 1st floor cloister has a a beautiful wooden ceiling. There you find an F for Ferdinand, but with Isabels symbol. And an Y for Isabel with his symbol. They are ONE.... More

Not in the first rank for a city boasting such a remarkable cathedral, but lavish architecture and a fine altar reredos. Convenient for a visit including El Transito and the St Martin Bridge
