Tour Details

Toledo, located 70 kilometers south of Madrid, is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. Called the "city of the three cultures," Toledo was once home to Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Toledo is renowned for its buildings that were constructed in a variety of architectural styles, including Arabian, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, and Baroque. Due to Toledo's rich history and culture, UNESCO declared the city a World Heritage Site in 1986.

On this Toledo full day tour from Madrid, you will see all of Toledo's major attractions. You will begin your Toledo tour with a visit to the city's colossal Roman Catholic Church, Cathedral of Toledo, built in the Gothic style. You will be amazed by the interior's ornate decorations and treasured relics. Next, you will explore the Church of St. Tome, where the Count or Orgaz is buried. Inside the church is a world-famous painting of the Count of Orgaz, "El Entierro del seņor de Orgaz," by renowned Toledan artist El Greco.

After seeing one of El Greco's masterpieces, you will continue your Toledo day trip at Santa Maria la Blanca Synagogue. Tour this beautiful synagogue that was designed by Mudejar architects. It is clear from the horseshoe arches that the architects were greatly influenced by Islamic architecture. You will then head towards Toledo's famous Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, which was founded in the 15th century by Spanish monarchs Isabella I of Castille and Ferdinand II of Aragon to commemorate the birth of their son.

Also on this Toledo tour, you will see the Mezuita del Cristo de La Luz, a former mosque that remains largely as it was during the Moorish period. Besides seeing extraordinary architectural masterpieces, you will learn about the famous technique of Damasquinado (encrusting precious metals in steel). Be sure to bring along a camera, because you will enjoy panoramic views of Toledo throughout this spectacular tour.
