Casco Historico de Toledo

The historical center of Toledo is a repertoire of exceptional landmarks that depict diverse architectural influences. Its charming alleys are dotted with a range of landmarks that belong to the Renaissance, Gothic, Mudejar and Arabic eras. The Toledo Cathedral, Alcazar and the Mosque of Cristo de la Luz are some of the most unmissable monuments located at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Muralla de Toledo

Despite the fact that both the Romans and the Visigoths undertook the task of protecting Toledo, it was the Muslims who, after capturing the city in 711, reinforced the old city walls to adapt them to their new military function as the frontier capital of the newly created Islamic State. The old Moorish wall still stands. It's still possible to see some remains of the Visigothic wall next to the Puerta de Bisagra).

Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo

Catedral Primada Santa María de Toledo is a huge, Gothic structure built between the 13th and 15th centuries with unusual mudejar-style decoration and vaults in the apse. Take a look at the extraordinary main altarpiece, the statues and frescoes in its 22 chapels, the Renaissance-style choir stalls and the plateresque wrought-iron work. However, the biggest attractions are kept in the museum inside the church: paintings by El Greco, Van Dyck, Titian, Lucas Jordan and Rafael along with Enrique de Arfe's 16th-century monstrance crafted out of gold and silver. Mass is conducted in Spring & Summer.

Puente de San Martín

San Martin bridge was built in 1203 to replace a previous bridge made out of wooden boats that was destroyed by floods. It too was partially demolished in the fourteenth century when the city was under siege during civil war in the Kingdom of Castille but was restored shortly afterwards. San Martin bridge has five arches and is flanked by two solid defensive towers with decorative facades.

Jewish Quarter

The history of Toledo is manifold, right from swords, to being one of the prime ancient cities with Jewish inhabitation. The narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter of Toledo are filled with stories, spine-chilling all of them, about the Community's eviction in the 15th Century C.E. The area now tells all about their lives, culture and regalia. There's the School of Translators that still exists, along with two of the ten Synagogues exhibiting the age-old scriptures and tales. History is not made; history makes us, and the Jewish Quarter explains that ardently, about the present-day Toledo, and the past. The Jewish Quarter should definitely be walked around, through the windy streets, where even time has barely managed to crawl in!

Alcázar de Toledo

This stronghold was built by Alfonso VI on a hill high above the city on the site of the ruins of a Muslim fort. It is rectangular in structure and flanked by four square towers. The facade presents rows of balconies and windows and a walkway with banisters. Alsonso de Covarrubias was responsible for the picturesque gateway. Nowadays, it is not only the home of the Museo del Ejército (Army Museum), but also houses the Regional Library which holds important collections and archives. The library has all the latest technology and provides computer terminals for Internet access for library users.
