The Three Cultures in Toledo


Walking further into the City of Tolerance, or the Three Cultures, we will visit a monument characteristic of each of these cultures and discover the impact each has left on Toledo.  We will walk through the city centre to discover:

  • Mosque of Cristo de la Luz. This is the only mosque still standing, of the many that existed in Toledo under Muslim rule.
  • Synagogue of El Tránsito, an example of Jewish power in medieval Toledo and a representation of the characteristic Mudejar style.
  • The Cathedral of Toledo. There is no other monument in Toledo that better represents the power of the Catholic Church and its expression through art than this marvellous Primate Cathedral.



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.
