About Toledo

Toledo's name resonates through Spanish history - it was once the capital, and because the name looms large, as a religious and cultural centre, the city might seem smaller than you expect. But don't be disappointed with your first impression, Toledo shouldn't be overlooked, it's home to a wealth of beautiful religious buildings - from churches, to mosques and synagogues, set around an old town ripe for discovering. Toledo can be busy with day trippers, so it's worth staying through the evening, when the city is even more magical - but don't worry, the best places to stay in Toledo are quite affordable.

Toledo's Cathedral is probably its most impressive sight - this was the historic capital of Catholic Spain, and its one of the most extravagant cathedrals n the country. The Transito Synagogue and 15th Century Franciscan monastery - controversially located in the Jewish part of town, are close rivals to the cathedral's grandeur. As is the Alcazar, rebuilt under Franco and now a military museum.

Toledo also has the remains of Roman baths, several interesting little museums, and some larger ones, and rows of plazas lined with wonderful little bars and cafes. Though a wealth of beautiful, historic treasures, Toledo is very much a living city and probably one of the very best places in the world in which to become lost.

The Best Places to Stay in Toledo
