...a past with the coexistence of Jews, Muslims and Christians


Surrounded by Tagus River as a natural defense, the old city of Toledo is just on the top of a hill close to Madrid (25 minutes by train).
Founded by Romans, Toledo is known as the city of the three cultures and tolerance because of over 400 years of Muslims, Jews and Christians living together and today, the city is the result of this cultural wealth.

Know the history, culture, and art of the old Spanish capital visiting the main monuments (Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo, synagogues, mosque. . . )

Itinerary

Starting with one of the best views of the city from the area known as "El Valle", then we'll go into the heart of the city of Toledo, visiting the main monuments of your choice (cathedral, synagogue, mosque, Greco paintings -OPTIONAL visits-).

We will finish in the Jewish quarter where you will find the main shopping areas and good restaurants to enjoy your lunch.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Depending on how you arrive in Toledo I can meet you at:
- Toledo Renfe Ave Train Station.
- Toledo Bus Station.
- Bisagra Gate (if you come with your own car)

If you sleep in Toledo I can meet you directly at your hotel.

End location: - The restaurant of your choice (if you lunch in Toledo). I will explain to you before the tour ends how to return easily to the train Station, bus Station or to your car.

- The main square (Zocodover) where the taxi and public bus stops are settled to go back easily to the train or bus stations.

- Your hotel.

This is a walking tour so you will decide the rhythm of the tour: fast to see as much as possible or relaxed to enjoy the experience. You decide always if you want to visit a monument or to stop for a drink, buy something or just rest.
