Full description

Leave Madrid and head towards the beautiful Imperial city of Toledo, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Toledo is one of the oldest cities in Europe with buildings that mix architectural styles including Arabic, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, and Baroque.

The great painter El Greco lived in Toledo in the sixteenth century. Immerse yourself with a guide and enter the heart of Toledo, visiting its most important monuments as well as the Jewish Quarter and the area of the convents. Hear stories and legends that will trace back centuries.

Enter a monastery of cloistered nuns, where you will taste typical Toledan marzipan, the jewel of the city's pastries. The nuns will present a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.

Discover the most emblematic places of the city, its history, its corners and anecdotes, and its main monuments such as the Cathedral of Toledo, whose architecture is a wonderful example of the Spanish Gothic style. Discover the magnificent Cathedral of Toledo on a guided tour accompanied by an official guide.

Wonder at the beauty enclosed within its walls. Learn about the history and the arts of this unique cathedral. The tour also includes free time for you to explore the rest of the city on your own, where you can return to places you have already visited or check out somewhere new.

If you would prefer to just sit back and enjoy a beer or eat on a nice terrace you will also have time to do so, and your guide will recommend some good local places. At the end of your tour, return to the center of Madrid via comfortable minibus.
