Discover Toledo, once the medieval capital of Spain

Travel south of Madrid approximately 44 miles (71 kilometers) to the glorious city of Toledo, the capital of Spain in medieval times and setting for the famous paintings of El Greco. Towering towards the sky of Castile, surrounded by the river Tajo, the city is a National Monument to Spain's art, history and spirituality.

Throughout the town you can appreciate the different architectural styles of Arabic, Mudejar Gothic and Renaissance whilst walking through its charming narrow and steeped streets. A guide will accompany you on a visit to the outside of the Cathedral which is an outstanding example from the Spanish Gothic period.

You will also visit the St. Tome Church where the masterpiece from El Greco is located "The Burial from the Lord of Orgaz", The Synagogue from Sta. Ma La Blanca, St. Juan of the King and a gothic style monastery. You will spend 2 to 3 hours in Toledo.

El Escorial Monastery, founded by Philip II in the 16th Century, is the largest Spanish building of the Renaissance. It was originally built to provide a place where the King could live the life of a monk whilst ruling the Spanish Empire. Enjoy a guided tour (including entrance fees) of the Austria's Palace, Kings Pantheon, Infants Pantheon, Capitular Rooms and the Basilica.

Located only 6 miles (9.5 kilometers) north of El Escorial lies the Valley of the Fallen, a vast Basilica excavated inside of the mountain, on top of which looms a gigantic granite monument. This majestic cross was built by General Franco to remember the dead of Spain's Civil War. The entire complex is surrounded by a landscape of unique beauty. Enjoy a guided tour inside the Basilica.
