Overview

This mosque, a reminder of Toledo's Muslim history, was the site of the first Christian mass in the city after its recapture in 1085. It is one of Spain's best examples of Islamic architecture. It is square in layout with beautiful columns, domed ceilings and a central garden complete with fountain. It is a fantastic visit and one that will take you back in time to Moorish dominion over most of the Iberian Peninsula. There are no official opening times, but the mosque can be visited by pre-arrangement.
