Toledo sits in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula. The city is so authentic, so representative of Spanish culture that it is considered a living museum of real life. Toledo is an intact medieval city, crammed with fascinating galleries, castles, churches and museums. The cathedral is awesome, with tremendous stained glass, murals and works by Spain’s top artists, Goya, El Greco and Velazquez.
Toledo tends to be busy during the day – if you have time, plan to spend the night. Exploring Toledo in the morning is ideal. It’s a magnificent place, truly one of Spain’s treasures.
