Toledo Cathedral: Red Hat Hanging from Ceiling in Front of El Transparente

Red Hat Hanging from Ceiling in Front of El Transparente

Red hat hanging from the ceiling in front of El Transparente, which belonged to the cardinal buried in a tomb directly beneath. Toledo's cardinals have the privilege of choosing anywhere in the cathedral to be buried, and their hats are hung above the tombs until they rot away (which takes quite some time).
