Highlights

  • Toledo is a picture-perfect medieval town that allowed Christians, Muslims and Jews to coexist peacefully and you'll see monuments from each culture
  • Visit Santa María la Blanca – presently a museum, it was built in 1180 as a synagogue by Islamic architects in a Christian kingdom for Jewish worship. It later became a church and was probably the only synagogue completed in Berber Muslim style.
  • Toledo was famed for thousands of years for its steel industry and you’ll learn how they forged the metal into fearsome swords that became the weapon of choice for Roman armies after the Punic wars

Description

Take a daytrip to Toledo and step back in history to not just one bygone era, but many. Famed as the City of Three Cultures for the peaceful co-existence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures, Toledo is so historic and beautiful that the entire city has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This daytrip from Madrid takes in some of Toledo's many amazing sights. At the Cathedral of Toledo, built in the 13th century, you’ll see the epitome of Spanish Gothic architecture.

Inside you’ll be treated to paintings by El Greco, ornate altars, stained glass windows and the 3m-tall Monstrance Of Arfe. Made of silver and gold and bejeweled, it was historically used as a display case for pious objects.

You’ll also visit the Synagogue of Santa Maríala Blanca and the Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz – similarly historic and which together give you a sense of how the city fostered peaceful coexistence.

Even though Toledo was peaceful, it was famed for its weaponry. In the Middle Ages if you wanted the most devastating of swords you bought one made in Toledo. You’ll learn about how the steel was forged and then how the weapon was encrusted with jewels to give it a touch of medieval bling.

Enjoy a lunch in the area - if you like book either the Tourist or Typical Lunch with your ticket and eat as a group.

The day will end with a sightseeing tour of the city. Not bad, considering it’s a picture-perfect town perched high on a rock, with the Tagus river snaking its way around on three sides. You’ll travel through mazy streets, over old cobblestones and around a city that has seen Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Christians.

Now that’s old-school multi-cultural. And it'll certainly give you something to talk about as you make your way by air-conditioned coach back to Madrid.
