Toledo fullday tour from Madrid
Toledo was declared by the Unesco a "city of World Heritage" in 1986. And this was due to the great importance of the city in the old times. . . it is one of the oldest cities in Europe and still preserves a rich number of historical buildings and the Main Church of Spain. By walking through the narrow streets of its old town, one may feel that Time did not pass.
The most fascinating period of Toledo was from the XII century until the XVI century. During this time, different cultures were coexisiting in the city: Muslims, Christians and Jewish People. As a result we find here a very particular architectural style , the "Mudéjar", a traditional jewellery "Damasquinado", and many other details on different fields that we will explore during our tour.
The world famous painter called "EL GRECO", arrived in 1577 in Spain, and will remain in Toledo the rest of his life.
We could stay different days in the city, exploring its picturesque corners and interesting churches and museums. A must .
Toledo is located at 44 miles from Madrid. We can reach it in 30' using the high speed train. The Price go and return are aprox. 22€ per person, but we must buy the tickets for the train in advance. (I can buy them for you if you wish and you pay them to me the day of the visit).
Once in Toledo, we will use a local taxi to do a panoramic tour of the old city. Its location is very beautiful and offers a very impresive point of view. And we will reach the historical city center that is like an open air museum. we will cross by walking the old city and will visit the Jewish Quater, the Church of Santo Tomé to admire the most famous painting of El Greco ("The Burial of the Lord of Orgaz"), and the main Chuch of Spain or Cathedral, impresive gothic building that shows us all the power and the wealth of the Church in the old times.
