Toledo

New2251

Toledo is a town in central Spain, 70 kilometres from Madrid. It is a fortress city with striking gates all around the city. The historic city centre sits on a craggy rock, which is almost completely encircled by a wide meander of the Tagus river. Known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries. The city’s historic centre is one of the largest in Spain, and has more than 100 monuments. Toledo was capital of Spain from the Gothic era until 1560, therefore it has a really impressive medieval architecture. Walking through its streets feels like stepping back into the Middle-Ages. It is possible to visit all the main attractions within the walled city in one day.
