Toledo Cathedral

Toledo Cathedral, in the city of Toledo, Spain, is a building of Gothic architecture regarded as the magnum opus of this style in Spain. The temple was erected over a Muslim mosque which previously was a church during the 6th century during the reign of the Visigoth King Recaredo. Its construction started in 1226 under the reign of Ferdinand III and the last Gothic contributions were in the 15th century. It is popularly known as Dives Toletana (meaning The Rich Toledan in Latin).
