It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance and Baroque style).

On this full day, small group guided tour, you will visit various important buildings in Toledo including the Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz, the old Bib-al-Mardum Mosque, or Valmardón Mosque. Discover the history of the mosques, a true reflection of Caliphic architecture. The visit continues with tour to the inside of the Cathedral. Its architecture shows all the stages of Spanish Gothic, and the inside of the building contains a large number of artworks (stained glass, choir, main altar, different chapels, El Greco paintings, etc.). Following that we will see the Church of St. Tomé, home to 'El Entierro del señor de Orgaz' El Greco's masterpiece and the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca. The tour will finish in Toledo with a trip to Toledo's viewpoint, to enjoy its panoramic view.
