Description

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.

The tour includes the visit of the Cathedral. This monument built on top of a Muslim mosque is a great example of Spanish Gothic art! The inside of the building contains a large number of artworks (stained glasses, choir, main chapel, altarpieces, El Greco paintings, etc.). 

Get to known the home of the famous painting El Greco, the Burial of the Count of Orgaz, the overwhelming Church of Santo Tomé. Here you will able to learn the story of this saint.

Visit one of the most enchanting monuments in Toledo, the old main Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca located in the Jewish quarter of Toledo.  It is considered a symbol of the cooperation of the three cultures who populated the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages.

Next, discover the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, built under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth I of Castile with the intention of making it a royal mausoleum in commemoration of the Battle of Toro and the birth of Prince Juan. 

Next, discover the Mosque of Cristo de la Luz, a rarity since it is in much the same state as it was when it was originally built! This is considered the oldest monument in Toledo.

At the end of the tour, enjoy learning about the famous technique of damascene* (incrustation of precious metals in steel) and the forge of the steel of Toledo for making swords. After this master class you have free time to buy something if you want.
