Description

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.

Itinerary

  • Outside view of the Cathedral

  • Church of St. Tome with "El Entierro del Señor de Orgaz" - the masterpiece of El Greco

  • Synagogue of Sta. Maria la Blanca

  • Museum of Victorio Macho

  • Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes

  • Famous technique of Damasquinado (encrust of precious metals in steel)

  • Panoramic sightseeing tour of Toledo

In the afternoon, you will visit Aranjuez, the Royal Site of the Crown of Spain, located in a fertile valley on the banks of the River Tagus 46 kilometer south of Madrid. It is known for its Royal Palace and its numerous gardens, which inspired the composer Joaquin Rodrigo to create the Concierto de Aranjuez. The Aranjuez Cultural Landscape was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001.

You will visit the Palacio Real, where we will appreciate the variety of decorative styles, particularly in the China Porcelain Chamber and the Throne Room of Elizabeth II, The Prince's Gardens, Parterre and the Island, which is characterized by great variety of vegetation and tree species.

Then, continue to the Museum of Royal Feluccas, where you will browse through the boats used by the royal family to navigate the Tagus river, including a gondola belonging to Philip V and boats of Charles IV, Ferdinand VII and Elizabeth II.
