Top 8 Places to See in Toledo

Known as the “City of Three Cultures” because Christians, Muslims and Jews lived peacefully there since the 8th century, Toledo, Spain is an incredible trip back in time. These are only the best of the city’s endless list of hidden gems.

Toledo Cathedral

As a monumental example of a High Gothic cathedral, some call the Toledo Cathedral the best of its kind in all of Spain.

Museum of Santa Cruz

What the art museum lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. The highlight of the museum is its El Greco collection, most notably the magnificent Retablo de la Asuncion.

Puente de San Martín

This epic medieval bridge spans across the Tagus river. Built in the late 14th century, it is still an architectural wonder with its five arches spanning at the longest 40 meters.

Castillo de San Servando

Be warned, this magnificent castle is closed to the public. Admire it from the outside or book a hotel room on the inside with Residencia Juvenil Castillo San Servando.

Alcazar of Toledo

You can’t miss this massive complex overlooking the city. Today it houses a never-ending military museum; understanding Spanish history is understanding Spanish conquest.

Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes

Describing this stunning Gothic monastery is impossible. The main cloister is the highlight with its high carved ceilings—seeing it may be the best 2.50€ you’ve ever spent.

River Tagus

Surrounding the city on three sides, the Tagus river provides a scenic walkway throughout the area. Pack a lunch or go fishing; centering your afternoon along this river is a must.

Puerta de Bisagra Nueva

The Puerta de Bisagra Nueva is the greatest of the city gates of Toledo and a fine example of Moorish influence. Entering the Old City doorway and exploring is a Toledo favorite.

Very nice day trip and good customer service

My friend and I missed our 830 am departure. We emailed the company and they allowed us to go on the 1130 am tour instead. Great customer service. The tour was great. Would highly recommend it and your company to anyone. Thanks.

Hi happy travelers - please do not miss Toledo if you have the time -

U wasn't very impressed with our tour guide or the bus driver. One suggestion please to all the drivers smile on your face want hurt you - we know it's not an easy job and to our tour guide please listen to your group when they requested that you use microphone which you flatly refused. It was obvious to all of us that it wasn't your good day.. Toledo is truly beautiful and do not miss out . We have taken all day tour do not miss out on Tokedo if you can spare the time from beautiful and elegant Madrid. I would give this tour 3 out of 5 just because of the above mentioned reasons.

A good compromise between doing Toledo independently and a guided tour

Short walking tour of Jewish Quarter and map in English gave a good introduction to Toledo and the 8 hour duration of trip allowed one the opportunity to select a number of places of interest to visit at ones own pace

Our tour guide, Stefanie, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Stephanie led us on a wonderful walking tour that gave us an indepth understanding of the history of Toledo. When I developed a blister on my foot, she came to the rescue with blister bandages. The day was a total delight!
