Visiting the City
The city of Toledo, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, is located on a rocky headland, bordered by the river Tajo in the very heart of Spain, just 70 kilometers from the capital, Madrid.
Considered by many to be a "Second Rome", Toledo is still very much a unique city. Unique in its details, history, culture and charm. Three cultures from three single-faith religions - Muslim, Hebrew and Christian - left their imprints on this sad rock and cradle of civilizations - as Cervantes wrote - embracing the Tajo, witness to the mark of all the peoples of the Iberian Peninsular.
For centuries, the capital of Castile-La Mancha has been able to preserve an unrivaled, thousand-year-old urban, architectural, and artistic heritage. Churches, synagogues, mosques, convents, city walls, bridges, towers and an endless amount of cultural and artistic possibilities held in their buildings make Toledo a museum waiting to be discovered.
Losing yourself in its squares, gardens and narrow streets will make your visit an unforgettable experience. Made to be walked along their long slopes and to be seen on the horizon, there are a large number of monuments in Toledo, surrounded by unforgettable spots and places that awaken sensations in the eyes of those who visit and those who have the good fortune to live there.
Enter, search, ask,.and if we may, one recommendation: lose yourself in the streets of Toledo. Toledo has a lot to see.
