Area Guide: Toledo


Toledo is a fortified city built on a hill overlooking the Tagus River and is without a doubt one of the densest monumental cities in the world

An important city in the Middle Ages it was Spain's capital until the 16th century. Nearly all the different stages of Spanish art are represented in Toledo: Moorish-Mudejar-Jewish buildings, such as the Transito and Santa Maria la Blanca Synagogues; Gothic structures, such as the splendid cathedral: and Renaissance buildings are all here.

In the 16th century, the city became home to El Greco, and Toledo has many of his paintings, among which is "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz", his masterpiece which is housed in the Mudejar Church of Santo Tome.

A military museum is located in the historic fort on Toledo's highest point. There is a wonderful network of winding streets with many shops selling the famous swords made in the city.
