Located 70 kilometers south of Madrid, Toledo is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Historically, it has been settled by Christians, Jews and Muslims, who have all lived together in harmony for centuries. Dramatically located at the top of a gorge overlooking the Río Tajo, the city boasts mosques with horseshoe-shaped arches, Sephardic synagogues and one of Spain’s finest Gothic cathedrals.
The enchanting city is also home to Visigoth and Roman roots, and its other forte is art. Learn why El Greco painted his haunting paintings here with an entrance ticket to the Church of Santo Tomé to see his famous painting of “The Burial of Count Orgaz."
