Visit this compact, beautiful city that used to be the capital of Spain

Toledo Day Trip

Toledo is the former capital of Spain, steeped in history. Our guide takes you through layers of civilization. Starting with the founding Romans, you learn about their Jewish, Christian and Muslim successors and discover how the faiths lived side by side.

This fairy-tale city is a must see for visitors during their time in Madrid. You will see the stunning Gothic cathedral and Primate cathedral in Spain, the Jewish quarter with its Tránsito synagogue and Sephardic museum, the El Greco masterpiece in the Santo Tome Church, the San Cristo de la Luz mosque and the elaborate cloisters of San Juan de los Reyes. There is so much to see in this compact and beautiful city which is just a half hour train journey from the centre of Madrid. Our guide will tailor the visit to suit your priorities.
