7 hour tour to discover a unique World Heritage Site.


Toledo is a museum-city of great artistic beauty and one of the oldest and most monumental cities in Spain.

Toledo keeps magnificent examples of architecture from different times, which makes it one of the leading artistic cities of Spain and has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Founded on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus river 2000 years ago, Toledo was a Roman municipium, the capìtal of the Visigothic Kingdom, a fortress of the Emirate of Cordoba, and, in the Middle Ages, the time of its splendour, it was named "The City of the 3 Cultures" because Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures were coexisting here.

Nowadays you can still admire the remains of churches, mosques and synagogues built during this time.

This tour is available for groups up to 30 people.

Itinerary

First of all we'll enjoy a sightseeing tour to see the wonderfull views of the old town located on a hilltop and surrounded by the Tagus river. Then, we'll get into the old town to feel the medieval atmosphere of the city and we'll start a nice walk through ancient narrow streets to visit its highlights such as

-The Cathedral (one of the largest and richest Cathedrals in Christendom)
-Santo Tomé Church ("The burial of the Count of Orgaz" the masterpiece by El Greco)
-Santa Maria La Blanca Sinagogue located in the ancient jewish quarter of Toledo

We'll also admire its famous handicraft works: the Damasquinado and its famous swords.

These are the highlights, but In case you are interested in visiting another monuments or museums I'll be very happy to show them to you as well.
