“Spectacular!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Our favorite of the cathedrals we visited-Segovia, Avila and Toledo. Too much baroque can be tiring and repetitive. Marvelously austere, a magical space.

“Worth going inside”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Really wonderful paintings on the walls and carvings as well.
A lot quieter than the new cathedral.
I really recommend it, even more than the new cathedral.
It's a pity we can not enjoy the little patio, although the rest of the building is really worth visiting
