This mosque from 999, later converted to a Catholic Church, is near one of the wall gates. Built in the Caliphate period, it is an important example of Moorish and Mudejar architecture in Spain. There is a beautiful legend about the horse of King Alfonso IV that occurred when the King entered Toledo in triumph. The horse knelt before the... More

This is the oldest standing building in Toledo and has many interesting things within the actual building (which is very small). However, from the grounds, on the side of the city wall, there re excellent views of large parts of the city and country side. Site was quite empty when we visited as most people just walked past the site... More

This is a pretty small attraction but quite historic. It reveals an ancient mosque which was converted into a Christian church with the addition of some new structures about 600 years ago. The building and grounds are quite limited compared to some monuments but interesting and engaging nevertheless.

I was with a day tour and the first stop was at Moque of Christ of the Light. The tour guide explained to us the history of the Mosque.

A small unassuming Moorish structure, this building dates back 1000 years and was originally a mosque. The outside reflects this with horseshoe arches. The inside has beautiful columns but after being turned into a church had some Christian frescoes painted. Such a serene place. It has a small Moorish garden which overlooks the lower part of the city.

This is another must see while in Toledo. It is a small building where half is a mosque and half is a church. It is very interesting to see the two architectures side by side. To top it off there is a white stone path they found from the Roman times. Cost of entrance 2.50 Euros per person.

But eh, that's Spain for you and history. After the Catholic kings took the place from the Moors, everything had to be rechristianized, hence the new name, but then, nowadays people recognize it's really a mosque...

This small, 1000 year old mosque was converted into a church 800 years ago. It is in remarkable condition and well worth a visit. Underneath the mosque ran a wide Roman road and sewer so the site has seen a lot of history.

The Mosque is small, but there are traces of old paintings and the arches give it a wonderful atmosphere. The apse at the end (added when it was converted to a church in the 11th Century) still show traces of the frescos which decorated it. Well worth a short visit, if in Toledo
