Description

Discover Toledo, one of the oldest towns in Europe with 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.

Upon arrival, we will start with a panoramic walking tour of Toledo, entering the old quarters to visit the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, and admire the facade of the impressive Primate Cathedral, the old Palace of Justice and the City Hall.

We will explore the beautiful Church of St. Tomé*, with the very famous painting of El Greco "The Burial of Count Orgaz".

During the morning tour, you will get to discover the Home-Museum of El Greco**, as in the XVI century Toledo was the place of residence of this great painter, as well as the Convent of Santo Domingo El Antiguo, where he was buried.

During the afternoon tour, we will visit the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca as well as the beautiful Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz.

Finally, we will visit a typical factory of Damasquino, where you can enjoy a demonstration of the making of this well known handicraft art of Toledo (incrustation of precious metals in steel)!
