  • The mosque has merit and should see it, but the audio-guide is not worth. A money shot, has many legends and brings little (better read the booklet giving input). This monument enters into a circuit that can be visited with a tourist bracelet which is worth € 9 and serves for 6 monuments. Not we were offered it at the entrance, although in the Jesuit church. It represents a saving of almost 50%... It is worth to buy it

  • In November, walking through the old Center of Toledo, stumbled upon this ancient mosque, which involves as many legends with the statue of Christ, found here by King Alfonso. Maura, of course, were remarkable architects, but the modest building with the remnants later frescoes, converted Christians in Church, I was absolutely not impressed. poor State. In Toledo is more interesting buildings can, after the restoration of the inner part of the Church will sparkle with new colors?

  • It is a beautiful mosque, you can see the pavement by the Romans. It has inscriptions in Arabic from the year 999, spectacular. The rest is a stop along the way, nothing more.

Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.
