Toledo, the City of Three Cultures

What does Toledo have that stirs up such deep passions?

Toledo receives visitors from all around the world all year long. It has something which attracts locals and strangers alike, welcoming them to walk around its streets, discover its most notorious artistic masterpieces and soak in the city’s unique cultural identity.

One city, three different cultures

Toledo has a history which is more unique than anywhere else, having left three overlapping cultures: Christian, Muslim and Jewish.

History is part of this city’s magic, a city where you can find synagogues, churches and mosques within a stone’s throw from each other, where every street has its very own past. Feel the history and legends of Toledo in each of its beautiful squares.

World Heritage Site

Toledo is a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO. The main reasons behind this title are the following attractions:

Historical Toledo

Losing yourself in the labyrinthian streets of Toledo is an experience in itself. The cathedral, the Alcázar, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, Santa María la Blanca synagogue, the Mosque of Christ of the Light and the many statues around the city are just some of the examples of what you can come across every step of the way.
