Itinerary

Discover the “City of the Three Cultures”

Located 70 km away from Madrid is Toledo, a beautiful city-museum declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance and Baroque style). Toledo is called the “City of the Three Cultures”, since Christians, Muslims and Jews lived together. In the XVI century, it was also home to the great painter El Greco.

Once in Toledo, you will begin your tour by visiting the outside of the Cathedral, shortly after, you will go to the interior of the Sto. Tomé Church with "The Burial of the Lord of Orgaz", masterpiece of El Greco, after that you will visit the interior of the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca and finally, you will see the interior of the incredible monastery of San Juan de los Reyes.

Once these visits are finished you will go to a demonstration of the famous technique of damascened * (Inlay of precious metals in steel), forging of swords. Once the demonstration has finished, you have free time to buy something you want. The tour will conclude with a Panoramic Sightseeing of Toledo and a stop at a viewpoint with breathtaking views of the city for taking the best pictures of Toledo.
