Mezquita de Cristo de la Luz Jun 14, 2016
This historic mosque is the only one which is preserved mostly unaltered. It was built in 999 with an almost quadratic shaped floor of roughly 8 metres by 8 metres. Some parts, like columns, were taken over from much older buildings. In 1186, a century after Toledo was reconquered from the Moors, it was converted into a church and an apse was added. Have a look at the Arab writing made of small stones. Inside, the Christian frescoes and the horseshoe-shaped niches are of particular interest. Beside the mosque itself, there is a small visitor centre with information on the mosque as well as a garden. Information available in Spanish and English, but focus more on the Christian history of the building rather than its Islamic roots and artwork.

Don't expect too much here. The building is in a sorry state and there is not very much to see. If you have a free entry (like with “Pulsera Turística”, see below) or are very interested, come and visit. Otherwise, time and money may be better spent elsewhere.

Entry fee 2,50 EUR (2016). “Pulsera Turistica“, a bracelet which gives you free entry to 7 Toledo sights, is valid here and also available here. See my separate tip about the Pulsera Turistica under General Tips for more details on that one.
