Toledo The Essential
The former capital of an autonomous Moorish kingdom, Toledo overlooks a deep gorge created by the Tagus. Inside the ramparts, the town boasts a multitude of magnificent monuments bathed in glittering Castilian sunlight, and an extraordinary maze of narrow winding alleyways. Toledo is a city of art, with a fascinating array of Christian, Jewish and Moorish sights. Admire the many impressive towers and mansions in this city, which is home to the richest array of Moorish monuments in Spain.
