Full description
Meet your guide in the City Hall Square and admire the western façade of Santa María de Toledo Cathedral. Then, with your guide, go on a tour into one of the biggest cathedrals in Spain and admire the pointing arches, the ribbed vaults, and the stained-glass windows in the greatest gothic cathedral of Spain. Learn about the history of this basilica from its construction in the 12th-century up until the modern day. Discover that before the cathedral, other temples were erected here over this sacred land.  Stroll down the naves to see the Treasure Chapel and to admire the fabulous Monstrance, made by Enrique de Arfe in the 16th-century. Explore the main altarpiece, which is wonderfully carved and summarises the life of Jesus. Hear the stories about the depictions in the choir stalls. See the vast organs that are still in use. Have time to admire a unique window called the Clear, made of wonderful marble, bronze, and alabaster. Do not miss the exquisite artworks of El Greco, Velazquez, Goya, and Caravaggio.

    Fabulous!

    Olga was friendly and charming and we enjoyed every moment we spent with her as she explained about the cathedral and made it come alive for us. We had visited the cathedral before but this time was an incredibly different experience. If you plan on visiting Toledo (and you should), you really, really will benefit from a guided tour of the cathedral. We will do it again and will urge our visitors to take a guided tour also. Thank you, Olga, for a terrific tour.

    I do not remember the name of the guide, she was very nice and very well informed, she wanted to tell and convey the grandeur of the cathedral of Toledo, impressive is the word that defines her. It was a leisurely visit by the guide and became very enjoyable.

    Olga was very knowledgeable and her English was easy to understand. She pointed out many interesting features and historical aspects as we moved through the cathedral
