La Catedral de Toledo

28 09 2011

This time around, I bite the bullet, pony up 7€, and properly enter the Cathedral of Toledo.

What’s on high is predictably over-the-top impressive.

But I’m more interested in details. Dragons are everywhere.

Lining one walled-in section in the center are hundreds of carved wooden ghouls.

Genuinely sinister.

The sublime can be just as grotesque as the profane.

was completely worth it, highly recommended – take a tourist or just a buddy and it’s a very cheap day-long escape.

Photos are amazing! I especially like the “sublime” Reminds me of a certain cherub in Paris.

The dragons are cool, but the pudgy cherubs (who appear to actually be about 50 year olds)?
