DescriptionJust a stones throw from the capital, this medieval maze of a city is an absolute must see for visitors to the area. Down winding cobblestone alleys you will discover the merging of Arabic, Jewish, and Christian cultures that have made their mark throughout history. On this half-day tour of Toledo, your guide will introduce you to the finest sites of the city, opening the doors to a rich and fascinating past. Going straight to the heart of Toledo’s art heritage, start at the church of St Tome. Adorned with the paintings of Spain’s 16th century renaissance master, El Greco, it's no wonder this chapel is the most visited in the city. Most remarkable is The Burial of the Count of Orgaz, which depicts in exceptional detail the funeral of the church’s benefactor. Other highlights of the day will include a visit to the oldest synagogue in Europe: the Santa Maria la Blanca, a stunning example of Moorish architecture, the 16th century Monastery of Saint John of Kings. Here in the former house and studio of a local painter, you can see examples of modern artworks and admire the beautifully sculpted garden.
