In 1577, one of the most important painters in art´s history arrived to Toledo and created his most important masterpiece in this “city of El Tajo”. A visit to the monuments where we can still admire his art will better familiarize us with his work:
- Hospital de la Santa Cruz.
- The Cathedral.
- Church of Santo Tomé, with the “The Burial of the Lord of Orgaz”.
- Convent of Santo Domingo el Antiguo.
Duration: The walking tour will last around 3 hours – 3 hours and a half.
Panoramic: For those groups coming to Toledo with their own bus, the visit will include a panoramic tour to enjoy the wonderful views from the other side of the Tagus river. Regarding those individuals coming from Madrid by high speed train (AVE), the panoramic tour could be made by taxi (10 euros aprox.) from the Toledo Train Station.
Monuments: Every monument included in the tour will be thoroughly explained by the guide.
Contents: Even though the walking tour has a common thread (The Three Cultures, El Greco, the Jewish Quarter,…) I will make alussion to every simple and important aspect of the city: handycrafts, cultural heritage, evolution of the old town, festivities, etc.
