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.

    We loved it. Olga is very nice, friendly and explains everything so beautifully and in a way that makes you want to know more and more. It was a success to see the Cathedral with Olga. From here I thank you again for your great work. We recommend 100% the visit with them. We will repeat in other cities without hesitation.

    Had a very interesting cathederal tour yesterday afternoon. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. We were on a tour with just one other family who spoke Spanish so she had to go back and forth between the two languages and did so competently. Was worth the time and money.

    The guide was very friendly and made the tour interesting and entertaining. However, we did not like it at all that we were at the meeting point at 12.35 p.m. as requested, but the tour only started at 1.10 p.m. Since the time of the actual start could not be told, we had to stand around for half an hour.
