Discover Spain’s "City of Three Cultures” on an 8-hour day trip to Toledo from Madrid, and explore the historic city center of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the peaceful co-existence of three main religions as you stroll the narrow streets.
What to Expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Madrid on a full-day tour of the historic city of Toledo, and learn about the harmonious co-existence of the three main religions that gave the city its nick-name of the “City of Three Cultures.”
Located 70 kilometers south of Madrid, Toledo is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Historically, it has been settled by Christians, Jews, and Muslims, who have lived together in harmony for centuries. Following your transfer by eco-bus, tour the center of Toledo on a 50-minute “Train Vision” adventure (commentary in 13 languages).
Dramatically located at the top of a gorge overlooking the Río Tajo, Toledo boasts mosques with horseshoe-shaped arches, Sephardic synagogues, and one of Spain’s finest Gothic cathedrals. The city is also home to Visigoth and Roman roots. Toledo’s other forte is its art. Learn why El Greco painted his haunting paintings here.
