We visited the Cathedral in Seville whic is highly touted and it's larger than the Cathedral in Toledo but we both preferred the Catedral Primada - it's simply beautiful. We purchased the audio guide and were very happy with the information provided.

It's a beautiful building and a must see in this city but the waiting was just too long for me and I think for a church that is supposed to be open for everyone is overpriced

Such a majestic architectural monument, full of history and rewarding Gothic style. There is so much to learn, a guide is a must due to the immense detail which is worth the explanation.

The church surprises you with its bright, open vaults as you come in from the claustrophobic alleys. A historic place of worship with art and tales that enthrall. My only complaint - the electronic prayer candles that light like a church slot machine. It's nothing like solemnly lighting tapers as you pray. Maybe holy pinball

This one is worth the price of admission. A large cathedral that takes several hrs to see everything. Beautiful paintings and architecture. A lot of history in one place. We went on a cold day and the hike up was worth slipping and sliding on the icy cobble stones.

I was completely overwhelmed. No other cathedral I have seen (and that's a number now) prepared me for the amazing detail in every last inch of this place. Even if you don't know any religious or political or art history, you will be impressed. And if you do appreciate any of those topics, you'll want to stay a while!

There are a lot of important cathedrals in Spain, and many of them are free to visit. We balked at paying to go in, but the Toledo Cathedral is worth it. It has a number of unique features, its is historically significant, but most of all they have a number of works by El Greco, namely the striking "The Disrobing... More

It's one of the best cathedral in Spain. I don't understand why it's such expensive. If you go to Italy all churches are free.

If you visit Toledo as a tourist, this place is likely one of the reasons why. It's one of the two or three must-see / must-do things there. A very impressive structure. Worth the visit. We recommend using the audio guide. And if the weather outside is cool, we recommend you wear a warm coat, scarf, and a cap, just... More

My wife and I was in there around 2 hours. I highly suggest doing the audio guide, and taking it all in. They play music every once in a while on the audio guide that really sets the mood. The place was awe inspiring. A must go!
