  • Church built over an Ancient Synagogue with a Roman road which runs from outside inside.

  • This old mosque is the only survivor of the old town of Toledo. Then it was converted into a church. Next, have a small garden, with a magnificent view from the walls. This attraction is one of the included in the "tourist pulsera" of the city. It's worth it.

  • Mezquita Cristo de la Luz is the best preserved of Toledo's former mosques, built from 999, a not very large and almost square building with Christian additions from 1100 century when Toledo again was under Christian rule, among other things, an apse with a fantastic mural on the ceiling: Jesus pantokrator that blesses the Congregation in church. The mosque/Church is today taken out of religious use and is strictly a museum. Particularly beautiful are the nine small arches in the ceiling, all of which are different. In front of the small building is a beautifully landscaped gardens. Visitors ' time here is probably no more than about 20 minutes.
