Known as “the city of three cultures”, it is where Muslims, Jews and Christians co-existed for centuries, giving the world and mankind the best example of respect, tolerance and peaceful coexistence ever experienced by a community before. Moreover, all the knowledge gathered for years is shown in the exquisite craftwork still produced in Toledo, and the proof of that is in the splendid steel swords, which were used by the Flanders regiments, as well as the delicate damascene or the unique production of marzipan.
Walking around the alleys of this city also known as the “Imperial City” – as it is where the Emperor Charles I established the capital of the Spanish Empire – will take visitors to a past age full of legends, anecdotes and fun facts.
Toledo is one of the best examples of a medieval city and architecture, which makes its historic centre one of the most beautiful and best preserved in the peninsula. That is why UNESCO declared Toledo a World Heritage Site in 1986.
Visitors can´t miss places like the Cathedral, also known as the Prime Cathedral of Spain; Santo Tomé Church, where we can see “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz”, a painting by El Greco, one of the most distinguished residents of the city; the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca; the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes or the Museum of the above-mentioned Cretan painter.
