The solemn Cathedral, the hub that is the Zocodover Square and the imposing Alcázar (Castle) opposite the Tajo are just a few examples of the many monuments and historic buildings that the city is home to. Museums such as the Museum of Santa Cruz, that usually houses visiting exhibitions, some of them from the Prado Museum in Madrid; the Sephardic Museum, the Museo de los Concilios Visigodos, the Museum of Victorio Macho and the Museum of El Greco, where you can find the most important work by the Cretan artist, one of the most illustrious figures of the city.

Discovering Toledo is not just a case of visiting the streets and the impressive monuments inside the city. To immerse yourself more in its history and in its art, the city has many artistic and cultural possibilities, offering exhibition halls, art galleries and tours that you can improvise along the narrow streets, squares and spots. One of the possibilities that tourists usually take advantage of is to visit the traditional patios of Toledo houses and enjoy their beauty, above all during the fiestas and especially in the Fiesta Week of Corpus Christi (May/June), since the majority are decorated for the occasion. If you find a door open in the Historic Quarter, do not hesitate, enter, and enjoy the light and color.
