Historically, it has been settled by Christians, Jews and Muslims, who have all lived together in harmony for centuries. Dramatically located at the top of a gorge overlooking the Río Tajo, the city boasts mosques with horseshoe-shaped arches, Sephardic synagogues and one of Spain’s finest Gothic cathedrals. The enchanting city is also home to Visigoth and Roman roots, and its other forte is art.
