Notes on the Geography of Spain: Toledo: Photo 68
There can be little disagreement about the building's size, which measures 113 by 56 meters. Nor can there be much disagreement that the Gothic style of the cathedral is a huge departure from the rest of the city. The archbishop who laid the cathedral's foundation stone in 1226, Rodrigo Jiménez de Rada, had five years earlier consecrated the Mudéjar church of San Roman. Jiménez, however, had been to France and seen the cathedrals under construction there.
The main entrance is sealed tight except on special occasions. The sculpted figures over the central portal represent the Last Supper.
