In the historic town of Toledo, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, there are churches, museums and buildings representing nearly all the artistic styles.

To get to the old town you have to go through one of the monumental gates on the walls, like, for example, the Bisagra Gate, Alcántara Gate or del Sol Gate. It is worth spending time in the cathedral: the spectacular chapels, the choir and the paintings in the vestry are impressive. Next to it you will find Renaissance buildings: the Archbishop's Palace and the Town Hall. The Alcázar fortress, which houses the National Army Museum, is another emblematic building. In the Jewish Quarter you will get to El Greco House-Museum and to the Santa Maria la Blanca and Tránsito synagogues. The latter houses the Sephardic Museum. The Cristo de la Luz Mosque reminds us of the Islamic past of the city. But the list of places to visit is even longer: amongst other places, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, the Santa Cruz Museum, and the Church of Santo Tomé, where the famous painting "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz" by El Greco can be seen.
