Cathedral of Toledo

Cathedral of Toledo or the cathedral of Saint Mary is a Roman Catholic cathedral. Even though the cathedral replaced an existing mosque, there are some elements of the Mudejar style present in its design, otherwise it is mainly inspired by Gothic influences, and it's considered the best example of Gothic Architecture in all of Spain. The cathedral sits on the site of the former Great Mosque of Toledo and was built in 1226, while Ferdinand III was in power. The Cathedral was modeled after the Bourges Cathedral in France, but it the plans were altered slightly to ensure the church covered all of the sacred space of the mosque. The cathedral is most famous for being the focus of a famous painting by the Greek painter Doménikos Theotokópoulos, known in Spain as El Greco (the Greek).
