From 711 to 1085 the spirit of tolerance which presided the occupation of the city by several Arab civilizations allowed for a peaceful coexistence between Christians, Jews and Muslims, characterized by respect and peace. Toledo was founded by the Romans, about 200 years before Christ, and in the 6th century AD was designated capital of Visigoth Spain. It was also the capital of Moorish Spain and after the Christian Reconquista, Toledo fell however in disgrace and was replaced by the first two Habsburg kings for Madrid as the capital of the Spanish kingdom. Nevertheless, Toledo is nowadays the thriving capital of the Castilla La Mancha region. The entire city, situated on a crossroads in central Spain as it were, can be considered a monument to artistic achievement from the Romans to the Renaissance. Our visit will start by enjoying spectacular views of this ancient World Heritage Site. We will continue the tour with a relaxing walk through the city’s winding streets, dotted with palaces and convents. Finally, we will finish our visit to Toledo with a Private Tour to the impressive Gothic Cathedral, the El Transito Synagogue and its Sephardic Museum and The Burial of Count Orgaz considered without any doubt El Greco’s masterpiece.
