Ceiling Skylight Over El Transparente

Cathedrals, rarely if ever, have skylights and I was so surprised when I came in to the Cathedral of Toledo in Toledo, Spain with my mother. I found out through research and some information that this skylight when it was built by Narcisco Tom was very controversial with Toledoans and throughout Spain. When I came into the Cathedral I was in awe over the beauty of what has been created and it really adds a sense of warmth as the skylight provides bright bright light coming through the ceiling of the cathedral. I think I stood in that one place to make sure I could get the best shot I could when looking up at this beautiful ceiling of light.
