What To Expect
The beautiful imperial city-museum of Toledo is located 70km away from Madrid. It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and is known as The City of the Three Cultures from the mix of influences from Christians, Muslims and Jews. Its genuine Spanish buildings span almost all the periods in the history (Arab, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style). This is also where the great painter El Greco lived back in the 16th century.
