Full description
Explore a beautiful city and UNESCO World Heritage Site with multiple claims to fame. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures” as well as the "Imperial City," Toledo's nicknames reference its status as the site of the court of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and the historical home of Muslims, Christians, and Jews who left a diverse architectural and cultural legacy behind. In addition, Toledo was the home of the great Spanish painter El Greco.

Admire buildings from a number of different periods that incorporate elements of Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. These include the Toledo Cathedral, the Church of St. Tomé (which features an El Greco masterpiece titled El Entierro del señor de Orgaz), the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca, and the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes.

Following your guided tour of these sites, enjoy time to shop at a typical Toledo damascening and sword-making factory. Learn about the art of damascening which involves inlaying various metals to create intricate patterns.
