One of the possible program’s day trips is Toledo, a historic and charming city marked by small streets, many cultural heritage monuments, and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Toledo is situated on a hill that rises 100 meters above the banks of the Tajo River. The city is known as the City of Three Cultures for having been populated over the centuries by Christians, Jews, and Arabs. It is also known as the Imperial City for having been the Spanish capital under King Carlos I. Toledo was named a World Heritage Site in 1987. The group will visit the city’s unique Gothic Cathedral, see works by El Greco (who lived in Toledo for many years), and tour other churches and synagogues that demonstrate the city’s unique multi-cultural character and importance as a religious site over time.
