Once the capital of Spain, Toledo is now a city full of character, with buildings and winding streets that contain hundreds of years of history, and the River Tajo running alongside it adding to the charm. This UNESCO World Heritage Site in central Spain is 70km south of Madrid, and with frequent trains and buses it's easy to get to our Toledo hostels and start discovering the city. Begin by entering the old city through the majestic stone gate and visit Toledo Cathedral, a 13th century Cathedral ranked among the greatest Gothic structures in Europe. Visit the Alcázar of Toledo, a stone fortification located in the highest part of Toledo. See what life as a monk is like as you tour El Escorial Monastery. Finally taste some of Toledo’s hearty food and buy a souvenir of pottery, embroidered linens or even a Toledan sword.
