  • Payment, without going over (6 Euros retirees with audio guide). Fully prepared for the visit, the visit route, well clear number of the audioguide, enters all-in price, cloister, Museum, etc. It must be seen if or if. I liked the main altarpiece.

  • Well worth visiting it and its Museum and admire its holy Chamber with its relics and their fantastic jewelry. The only thing that a visit to the not be able to be guided to go alone because you have to search a little life. But well worth visiting it.

  • Breathtaking. Do not forget to visit the Cámara Santa where rhe Sudarium is kept. Many treasures there.
  • If you are looking at the cathedral turn around and find the building with the bullet holes in it. The sign says Calle de Rue.
  • Beautiful Cathedral if you are visiting Toledo you won't miss it
  • Absolutely amazed by the interior. It took my breathe away!! Entrance can be tricky if you do not already know someone who has admission to this church - how it works exactly, I'm not sure. I was told that there's a paid guided tour around, so maybe check it out on forums and book inadvance?
