Full description
Discover a different perspective of Toledo, where popular legends are told on every single corner. Learn why painting with a virgin can help you to find true love. Explore an old mosque where a cross had been hidden for centuries. 

Immerse yourself in the conventual quarter of Toledo and admire the beauty of nunneries and monasteries that were wealthy and cluttered in the old good days. Hear about stories of royal burials and see the now empty streets.

Follow your guide and take a leisurely stroll to lonely areas where some centuries ago, the romantic writer Bécquer imagined his legends. Wander along cozy streets that seem to trap you inside a maze where reality and fantasy merge seamlessly.

Alternatively, choose the Torture and Inquisitions Tour option, stroll through quiet streets and squares that inspired romantic legends — but was everything so idyllic? Discover the darkest side of Toledo and the black legend of the Inquisition. Learn the history and legends of the Inquisition and visit the dungeon of the prison that inspired Edgar Allan Poe.
