Worth it. I took 90 mins to enjoy to enjoy the audio guide. The light colours stone lifted the air up to the stained glass windows. Go if you want serenity. Also El Greco paintings on display.

My wife and I were very impressed by the Cathedral in Toledo, in which we spent several hours. There are many interesting parts to the cathedral, some of which are not at first obvious. Among the most interesting were the choir, the high alter, theTransparente, the Sacristy with El Greco's Denuding of Christ, and the murals in the Cloister. We... More

The temple was actually built on top of a Muslim mosque, and before that it had been a church in the sixth century during the reign of the Visigoth King Recaredo. King San Fernando and the archbishop began building the new church in 1226. The fifteen chapels of the ambulatory were subsequently completed. In the year 1300 the transept nave... More

Toledo may not be the capital of Spain in some ways, but it is the religious capital. The cathedral is a major focal point of Toledo and a tour is worthwhile. You can also reserve a walk up into the bell tower. When I went it was at 4:00 pm and the bells are impressive.

Only had a few hours in Toledo, but another reviewer said best church ever and he had been to over 70. Dude could not have been more correct. Fabulous. Audio set was terrific, even if I had trouble finding the number sequence. All was labeled and the English audio was perfect. I am not knowledge in regards to art, but... More

Cathedral 8 euros each ticket purchased from shop opposite. There were no toilets in the cathedral but there were ones in the shop for visitors. It took us two hours using the audio tapes provided. These were included in the cost, although it was necessary to provide an ID to leave with the shop as assurance. So in our case... More

This is a must see place if you like going into churches. It costs 8 Euros to get in but you get a headset to tell you all about the cathedral and its history. The only downside was that it was hard to follow the stops in sequence. That was a minor irritation how ever. The cathedral is immense and... More

Not bad as cathedrals go. The audio is a bonus but the production crew got a little carried away at times. The general admission is about 8 euros although years ago I seem to remember it as being free. The usual chapels, choir and mind blowing altar. Highlight for me was El Greco's El Expolio (The Disrobing of Christ).

This is one of the finest Cathedrals on Spain. There is a small entrance fee but you get an audio tour included in the price. Toledo is very full with tourists. The Cathedral is a must. I would recommend a visit as soon as it opens.
