Toledo, former capital of Castile, is a beautiful walled old city with cobblestoned small streets to be discovered only on foot.
Toledo, present see of the Catholic Church in Spain, hosted in the past the harmonious living of Arabs, Jews and Christians. This multiculturalism is evident all over Spain but has in Toledo a more vivid presence.
From the ring-road around Toledo, the view is impressive: the traditional country houses, locally known as “Cigarrales” spread all over the hills surrounding Toledo and Tagus river encircling the magnificent city.
Toledo is a destination by itself, but it can easily be combined with Madrid for a day excursion, be a nice stop-over on a journey connecting Madrid and Andalusia, or function as the headquarters of a trip to Castilla La Mancha, homeland of Don Quixote and Pedro Almodóvar!
