Toledo - Catedrala - Narciso Tomé - Transparentul

El Transparente is a Baroque altarpiece in the ambulatory of the Cathedral of Toledo.
Its name refers to the unique illumination provided by a large skylight cut
 very high up into the thick wall across the ambulatory,
 and another hole cut into the back of the altarpiece itself
 to allow shafts of sunlight to strike the tabernacle.

 It was created in 1729-1732 by Narciso Tomé
 and his four sons: two architects, one painter and one sculptor.
