Toledo Spain Attractions

From the old but beautiful buildings to the winding streets, the River Tajo flowing gracefully along and also the local events, Toledo is beyond magical. The tourist trade is massive here and if you want sparse crowds, head to Toledo mid-week during the low-season months. The city itself dates back to the 13th century, to a historic time when Moors, Christians and Jews lived together and in peace. The churches and historic sites are a wow-factor and so is the natural landscape, with its hills, meadows and more. The stone gate serving as entrance into the Old City will take you down paths you never would’ve believed existed. Be sure to add these to your list… Puerta Bisagra, the Synagogue of Saint María la Blanca, Alcázar, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and the Taller del Moro, to name a few major Toledo attractions.
