Before we went in, we watched firefighters practicing rescue maneuvers by using ropes to come down from the steeple. Since that area was closed to visitors, the entry price was a bit less. I have visited many churches but this is one of the most awe inspiring and incredible ones I have seen. Everywhere you look there is something else... More

The elaborate cathedral tower stands about 300 feet tall. The Cathedral is considered one of the greatest Gothic structures in all of Europe, the second largest cathedral in Spain, after the one in Seville, but the most... More

You must visit this when going to Toledo. The architecture is amazing. My wife and I decided to walk along the water instead of entering the Cathedral but it was an inspiring building.

At first we were hesitant to pay 10 euros to see a church, but this wasn't an ordinary one. The architecture was amazing, better than many other major churches I've seen around Europe. The money comes with an audio guide which is indispensable in helping you get around and understand the area. The El Greco paintings were magnificent to look... More

I have been to 47 countries in the world and visited a LOT of Cathedrals. Catedral Primada is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is almost beyond words. You have to see the inside to believe how beautiful the history and art work are within this structure. It is overwhelming. You need a lot of time... More

The Cathedral of Toledo is noteworthy not merely in terms of architecture. Artistically, it is an immense treasury of painting, sculpture, woodcarving...all of quality beyond compare!

You can't miss seeing the towers of the Cathedral as they rise above the medievel part of the city so you have to see it inside. It is massive and because it was built over a long period of time it mixes styles from France and Spain and shows the Gothic influence.

Nothing much to add that hasn't already been said, a quite beautiful piece of architecture, stunning form the outside, but that's nothing when you enter.....an essential visit in this lovely, charming Spanish Town.

This massive cathedral is a must see when visiting Toledo. The sheer size will amaze you. The chapels are each unique and interesting to see. Be sure to note all the amazing pieces of art as well. Seeing it with a guide will greatly enhance your visit because they bring history to life!
