What do we see on the Monumental Toledo Tour?

Alcázar & Mosque of EL Cristo de la luz

The Toledo Monumental Tour is a fascinating journey through the historic city of Toledo, offering an opportunity to closely explore the rich cultural heritage of the three cultures that coexisted in the city for centuries: Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. The tour begins at the impressive Alcázar, a medieval fortress that has served as a royal palace, prison, and military academy. From there, it heads towards the Mosque of Christ of the Light, one of the few remaining mosques in Toledo that dates back to the 10th century. This mosque, which was later converted into a church, is an impressive example of Islamic architecture.

Primate Catedral

Next, the tour heads towards the majestic Toledo Cathedral, a stunning Gothic building constructed in the 13th century that houses an impressive collection of religious art, including works by El Greco.

Jewish Quarter

The tour continues through the Jewish quarter of Toledo, where visitors can see the Church of Santo Tomé, which houses the famous painting by El Greco "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz". The tour also visits the synagogues of Santa María La Blanca and del Tránsito, which are a testament to Toledo's rich Jewish heritage. Finally, the tour concludes at the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, an impressive building constructed by the Catholic Monarchs as a monument to their victory in the Battle of Toro. This monastery is a magnificent example of Gothic and Renaissance architecture .
