The gems stones will blow you away

This amazing thing, has gem stones all over it and the size of some of them are extremely large. Very impressive structure in the corner of the cathedral.

This is a collection of some beautiful artwork, which can be seen inside the cathedral in Toledo. The artworks vary in size but all look absolutely stunning with their silver and gold decorations. Don't miss it while in the cathedral.

When visiting the Cathedral there is a lot to see. Make sure to take the time to view this silver and gold Monstrance that is over 10 feet high. It will take your breath away.

This magnificent Cathedral houses a collection of art and religious artifacts that seems unsurpassable. The Custodia, made of New World gold, is one of the richest objects I personally have ever seen. Challenges one to acknowledge the role of faith in human endeavor and economy.

A large custody for carrying the Sacred Eucharist in processions, this is a marvel of artwork and detail. Must see at the cathedral.

Beautiful part of the exhibit inside the Museum, Toledo Cathedral. We were definitely not expecting this kind of art, creativity and definitely talent from God. we are so blessed to be able to witness what so many of these artists used their talents to praise God. Would love to come back with more time.

I am so over churches, everyone has got one. But this is the finest structure I have EVER seen. I could just sit for hours looking at the intrigue of the Alter. Go see it.

It really is impressive. Slightly disturbing when you see what relics are kept but really interesting. You need to search this collection out and spend some time with it.

The cathedral is nice just like the rest in Spain but this Cathedral has a section of unique pieces that makes it worth going in. You can see gold pieces, crowns with real precious stones, books with gold decorations...
