Why Visit Toledo, Spain

One of the major centers of medieval history in Europe, a picturesque city of Toledo, is a great place to visit for those interested in exploring Spain's historical heritage. This small fortified Spanish town looks very charming and boasts numerous ancient synagogues, striking mosques, and impressive churches. It's really hard to find any Spanish town conserved in its historical style as good as the former capital of the country.

But beautiful views are far from being the only reason to set off on a Toledo Tour. This place also takes pride in the exceptional cultural background. For centuries, the town was home to Arabs, Jews, and Christian, and the evidence of that and plain to see for anyone who stops by. The city seems like one large museum, and it is one of the Spanish cities with the greatest wealth of monuments encompassing rich heritage from different epochs. It inspired El Greco, and many of his paintings are on display in the museum in his honor as well as around the city.

There is no need to hit the numerous museum or explore the countless historical sights of Toledo to feel like you've stepped back in time. Enjoying a stroll along its medieval streets is enough to make you feel like you transported to Spain of the Middle-Ages. But if you feel like stopping by at least a couple of sights during your Toledo travel, we recommend focusing your attention on such magnificent Toledo sights as the 6th-century Fortress of San Servando, the 10th-century Mezquita del Cristo de la Luz, the 12th-century Puerta de la Bisagra, and the 13th-century San Martin Bridge.
