Custodia de Arfe
Dec 2019
Impressive gold religious icon used once a year in a parade. It is ornate to the extreme and a wonderful example of the craftsmen of the period.

GORGEOUS METALWORK
Nov 2019
This is the most stunning piece of metalwork I have ever seen in my life. The amount of detail is gobsmacking. To think a human mind conceived of it is beyond my ability to comprehend. It sits inside a non descriptive room of the Primada Catedral.

Part of the cathedral with its religious object
Oct 2019
The beauty of the religious objects were great. The Chapter house was very unusual with its El Greco's and meeting room of Archbishop's portrait from 12th Century to present.

Did a guided tour of Toledo and so happy I did. A good way to put context to the incredible historic significance to the magic of art and artifacts that pull you want not another time and space.

You don't need to be a history or religion buff to appreciate what is around you. It's UNESCO delegation is just the start.

This is a place to go and succumb.

The richness of this icon beggars belief. Fascinating history of its origins. Try to view when not crowded if possible.

what a beauty to stand in front of it...
May 2019 • Couples
The creator of the Great Monstrance was the metalworker Enrique de Arfe, born Heinrich von Harff, originally from Julich or Harff near Cologne, Germany….. It is of late Gothic design. This triumph of the silversmith's craft is in the form of a Gothic temple, with all the architectural details, such as columns, arches, and vaultings, the whole resembling a delicate lacework. Scenes from the life of the Saviour are illustrated in relief. It has two hundred and sixty statuettes of various sizes, all exhibiting the same skill in workmanship….

Monument to see!
May 2019 • Friends
Again, great works of art here and worth the visit. After a while you can see why all ofToledo is a UNESCO SITE. There is also a Jewish quarter to visit. The streets are narrow and winding and full of bakeries and food stalls.

So much gold
Oct 2018 • Business
This object was used to march in the streets and impress the flock. It’s got so much gold and so many jewels. This church had so much money and this is amazing.
