From Madrid: Half-Day Art & Architecture Tour in Toledo
- Enliven your artistic senses in front of El Greco's paintings at St Tome Church
- Understand the roots of Judaism within Spain at the Santa Maria la Blanca
- Visit the beautiful 16th-century church, Monasterio de San Juan de Los Reyes
On this half-day tour of Toledo, your guide will introduce you to the finest sites of the city, opening the doors to a rich and fascinating past.
Going straight to the heart of Toledo’s art heritage, start at the church of St Tome. Adorned with the paintings of Spain’s 16th century renaissance master, El Greco, it's no wonder this chapel is the most visited in the city. Most remarkable is The Burial of the Count of Orgaz, which depicts in exceptional detail the funeral of the church’s benefactor.
Other highlights of the day will include a visit to the oldest synagogue in Europe: the Santa Maria la Blanca, a stunning example of Moorish architecture, the 16th century Monastery of Saint John of Kings. Here in the former house and studio of a local painter, you can see examples of modern artworks and admire the beautifully sculpted garden.
