In a world where religion continues to act as a divisive force, Toledo is a refreshing throwback. Dramatically situated at the top a gorge overlooking the Río Tajo, it was known as the City of 3 Cultures during the Middle Ages, and a place where Christian, Muslim, and Jewish communities peacefully coexisted.
Rediscovering the vestiges of this unique cultural synthesis remains modern Toledo’s most compelling attraction. Horseshoe-arched mosques, Sephardic synagogues, and one of Spain’s finest Gothic cathedrals are all found in its dense historical core.
But the layers go much deeper. Further sleuthing will reveal Visigothic and Roman roots. Toledo’s other forte is art, in particular the haunting canvases of El Greco, the influential, impossible-to-classify painter with whom the city is synonymous.
You will be back in Madrid by the evening.
