This cathedral is overwhelming - so full of gold, art. The place is massive! There is a good collection of art that is nicely displayed in the sacristy. I was in the place 3 hours with the audioguide.

It’s certainly a grand cathedral, it’s one of Spain’s most important cathedrals. The size is massive and is certainly one of the best Catedral in Europe.

and stayed for several hours. There is so much to see even for an atheist who abhors those who talk to imaginary friends and commit atrocities on their instructions. Spain was a place of contradictions and many possibilities. This Cathederal embodies many of these possibilities...More

If you like cathedrals and visited many in your life, you will be impressed with this one. It is impressive from start to finish. At some point you may even get tired from the never ending impressions of the chapels, windows, ceilings, all details. It...More

This is a masterpiece of baroque and gothic styles. Richness, some cultural mix as it is common in Spains and some masterpieces ins sculpture and painting. Allow some 3 hours at least! Not to miss!

Sadly we only saw this lovely Gothic Cathedral from the outside as we were part of a guided tour of Toledo with time constraints. Judging from comments made by people who saw the interior we really missed out as the Cathedral's guided tour, unusual features...More

Probably the most beautiful cathedral interior I’ve ever visited, due not only to its sumptuous decorations but also its unconventional layout which gives it a unique expansiveness and atmosphere. The Baptistery contains a fabulous collection of religious art, including works by El Greco and Caravaggio....More

Since you have come all this way to see this, I highly recommend getting the audio tour. It is well worth all the info you will discover about the history of Spain and what makes this place so incredible.

Seen a lot of churches around the world. This one is cavernous, with an interesting mixture of gothic and Moorish elements, unusual placement of the choir and organs, and an enormous main altar area. Side rooms include art, even a couple of El Grecco's.

I can not say for sure about this but I think 10 am and it varies about closing but 6.30 rings a bell. This place can be busy but it is interesting. The audio guide is fairly good, only had 2 moments of ??.
