Toledo is known worldwide as an example of cultural tolerance between the three cultures. Jews, Christians and Muslims lived in the medieval Toledo and each one of them has left a trace behind. We will go after the footprints of all these people although at times the myth of tolerance might seem to fade way. I want to show you the real stories of the real people. Would you join me?
You will not get lost in any twisted allies in the Cathedral, but if you don’t make your visit with a tour guide for sure you will miss most of its treasures. If you don’t want to make tour of Essential Toledo but you still want to visit the Cathedral and enjoy it fully, this is the perfect tour for you. I will tell you how one of the most magnificent cathedrals in the world was built, the stories behind masterpieces of medieval art and so much more.
