Toledo, Spain

TOLEDO AT A GLIMPSE
Toledo Spain is a small fortified town and one of the most important centers of European medieval history. Synagogues, mosques and churches stand side by side in Toledo's historic quarter.

It is known as the “city of the three cultures” because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries. The medieval Spanish city has a very diverse history and there is probably no other town so well conserved in its historical style.

The city seems as if one large museum and it is one of the Spanish cities with the greatest wealth of monuments encompassing rich heritage from different epochs. The city inspired El Greco, and many of his paintings are on display in the museum in his honor as well as around the city.

Toledo was the country’s capital from the Gothic epoch until 1560, what explains its really impressive medieval architecture. Walk down the streets of its ancient fortified old town and feel how you’ve stepped back into the Middle-Ages. Here are some recommended must-sees:

  • Fortress of San Servando (6th century)
  • Mezquita del Cristo de la Luz (10th century mosque)
  • Puerta de la Bisagra (12th century town-gate)
  • Cathedral (founded in 1226)
  • El Greco Museum
  • San Martín bridge (13th century)
  • Plaza de Zocodover
Explore Toledo - one of the Spanish cities with the greatest wealth of monuments.
