Toledo, just 44 mi (70 km) south of Madrid, is the former capital of Spain and is known as "the city of three cultures". Inhabited by everyone from the Romans to the Christians, Toledo has served as a homebase for each of its conquerors. There are traces of each major religion that still remain throughout the city: the Muslim mosques, Jewish synagogues, and the Catholic cathedral. The collections of Toldeo's museums further reflect the city's long and rich history, containing artifacts of the early Visigoths along with Renaissance art by the famed El Greco.

A walking tour is a must to truly see and appreciate Toledo's treasures. Starting from the Plaza de Zocodover, make your way to the Alcazar (castle), all the while winding through the alleys and stopping at each religious institution and museum as you go. One could easily devote an entire day to exploring this ancient city so take your time and don't forget to pause at the top of the hill for remarkable views before you depart.  

Practical Info

With so much to see in Toledo, it is best to go on a guided tour of the city. Having someone who understands the history and culture of Toledo will add to the experience and ensure that you don't miss anything!
