The Highlights of Toledo
Discover the fascinating and beautiful old city of Toledo and enjoy its cultural highlights through a fun-filled and highly entertaining walking tour especially designed for families.
The old city of Toledo is a must see when spending a few days in Madrid.
Located only an hour away from Madrid’s city center (accessible by high speed train from Madrid’s Atocha train station), Toledo is a historical highlight and a charming city you must not miss when traveling with your children in Spain.
After meeting our expert, fully-licensed guide, let him/her first take you to the top of a hill for a beautiful panoramic view of the old historical center of Toledo. This is a perfect place for an introduction on the city and its historical importance, and a great area to take pictures!
Once back inside the historical center, let you guide take you through its narrow streets which lead to some of Toledo’s most famous highlights. These highlights include the unique Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes (a superb monastery built at the very end of the 15th century), the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca, the Synagogue of El Transito, the Church of San Roman and the Mosque of Cristo de la Luz.
Along the way, you will also see the exteriors of magnificent architectural wonders such as the Iglesia de Santo Tomé (a church built on the ruins of a mosque, and famous for being the home of a famous painting by El Greco), the Iglesia de los Jesuitas, the imposing cathedral of Toledo (Santa Iglesia Catedral Primada de Toledo), and the Alcazar (a Moorish building built during the times when Spain was under Muslim rule in the 16th century.)
To make it extra-engaging for your children, each one will get a special game booklet. With this, the young ones will learn about the historical legacy of Toledo as much as they will have fun!
Be sure not to miss Toledo during your time in Spain!
