Toledo Cathedral

High Altar, Toledo Cathedral

Cath-5

El Transparente is a unique feature of the cathedral. In the 1700, a hole was cut into the ceiling to let the unbeam brighten Mass.  The opening faces east, and each morning the rising sun reminds all that God is light.  Melding this hole with the Gothic church was a challenge… The result was a Baroque masterpiece, carved out of marble from Italy.
