...a past with the coexistence of Jews, Muslims and Christians
Sourrounded 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 for over 400 years here were living together Muslims, Jews and Christians 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. . . )
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)and the main shopping areas.
