When you enter Toledo you go across the medieval bridge and through a gateway built into the old stone wall that used to defend Toledo. From this point a visit to Toledo makes you feel you have gone back in time by hundreds of years.

As well as many historic buildings, Toledo has many museums. Toledo is also well known for swords due to its historic reputation for making fine swords.

WHERE IS TOLEDO – HOW TO GET TO TOLEDO

Toledo is located in central Spain only 69km southwest of Madrid so that would be the obvious gateway to access Toledo.

Transport and getting to Toledo from Madrid is straightforward as there are many buses, trains and organised tours running daily.

Toledo is located in the Spanish province of Toledo, it is the capital and it is situated in the Spanish community of Castilla La Mancha.

HISTORY

Toledo has become such a major tourist destination because it was the capital of Spain right until the year 1560.

When you visit Toledo you will understand why – the city is located in the centre of Spain and sits on a hilltop making it a great strategic location when it came to defending itself against attackers. Adding to this is the fact Toledo is also mostly surrounded by the river (rio) Tagus.

It is difficult to imagine this today in times of conflict but in the city of Toledo there was a mixture of races and religions such as Jews, Arabs, Moors and Christians and in general they lived in relative harmony. Because of this great ethnic mix, Toledo has many different sights and tourist attractions.

THE ALCAZAR FORTRESS

The Alcazar fortress is perhaps the first thing you notice when you approach Toledo.

The four towers are unmistakable. It dates back to the 10th century. As recently as the Spanish Civil War in 1936, the fortress was used for defence and was mainly destroyed and had to be rebuilt.

THE JEWISH QUARTER

There are two synagogues remaining in Toledo which had a large Jewish population in the Middle Ages these being El Transito (14th century) and Santa Maria la Blanca (12th century). Although the Jews were expelled from Toledo in 1492 much history remains.

TOLEDO CATHEDRAL

Toledo cathedral dominates the skyline of Toledo. A true work of art, the cathedral took over two centuries (the 13th to the 15th) to complete!

The architecture of the cathedral is a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Inside Toledo cathedral are many works of art including works by Velazquez, Goya and El Greco as well as the golden monstrance which is taken outside through Toledo during Corpus Christi.
