Notes on the Geography of Spain: Toledo: Photo 19

world pictures Spain: Toledo

Ford writes: "In the Calle de Cristo de la Luz is a very curious Moorish mosque, which was afterwards given to the Templars." The structure--the oldest building in Toledo--consists of a tiny mosque on the right, completed in 999, and an apse added after 1186. At that time the mosque was transferred from the archbishop to the Templars, or Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, builders also of the Puerta del Sol.
