See this great old city with a knowledgeable guide.


In this day trip from Madrid we will see the ancient city and it's exciting palaces, museums, churches and of course El Greco. Picturesqued sited on a hill above the river Tajo. Behind the old walls lies much evidence of the city's rich history. The Romans built the fortress on the site of the present-day Alcazar. The Visigoths made of Toledo their capital in 6th century and left behind several churches.

In the Middle Ages Toledo was the melting pot of Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures and it was during this period that the city most outstanding monument-its cathedral-was built. In the 16th century the painter El Greco came to live in Toledo and today the city is home of many of his works
