This mosque was built in 999 ac to add context. Small but beautiful. Has outside garden area with great view of pubertal del sol. I would highly recommend purchasing the wrist band which gets you into pretty much every historic site minus the alcazar and...More

Once again another place with so much history. A mosque that later becomes a christian church?? The best part is that one culture did not destroy what the oprevious culture built, they just added to it.

One of the most beatiful places to visit in Toleda, with a small garden, is a perfect place for a short rest after visiting the buzzing city center

We visited about 45 minutes before this 'Mezquita' was to close for lunch. Note, it's also known as Cristo de la Luz mosque; often best to avoid literal translations. It was a hot July afternoon, and the overheated admissions clerk (two stars) was somewhat erratic...More

Originally a mosque, converted into a church some 200 years later, this is an endlessly fascinating site. The nave has a wealth of architectural detail, as well as an extraordinary 12th century fresco. There's also a fragment of a Roman road, preserved under a glass...More

It's absolutely essential to use the (free) audio guide for this monument. If you don't, it's just a pretty building with a lovely garden.......and you'll be out in ten minutes. The guide brings it alive and provides so much detail and information.....possibly too much for...More

This place is so inexpensive to visit (and I think there's a pass with other sights too) that it's definitely worth a visit. There's not much to see, but as someone who loves history that made it worth the visit. This was originally a mosque...More
