Visited in early October on the way to Madrid. Allow at least an hour, maybe more and make sure you get the audio tour. Possibly one, of if not the best cathedral's I have ever seen.

Toledo is a very easy day trip from Madrid on the AVANT rail. The Cathedral is the main attraction and worth a visit. Used the audio guide which helped explain a little more of the significance of what you were looking at. Beautiful church.

I can not say for sure about this but I think 10 am and it varies about closing but 6.30 rings a bell. This place can be busy but it is interesting. The audio guide is fairly good, only had 2 moments of ??.
