Location and orientation
Toledo is the city of the province of the same name and lies on the river Tejo, about 65 kilometers southwest of the capital Madrid. The city is divided into 16 districts, two of which are within the city walls. The history of the city was marked by permanent settlements by Romans and Visigoths. For an arrival by plane we recommend the airport of Madrid.
Toledo is considered the "city of three cultures" and birthplace of the hapless knight Don Quixote.
Top 3 travel tips
Toledo has an impressive old town, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List at the end of 1986. The imposing cathedral of Santa Maria from the 13th/15th century rises high into the sky in Gothic style. However, Toledo is dominated by the Alcazar fortress, built on a rock and dating back to the 16th century. The former Hospital de Santa Cruz is today a museum and also worth seeing.2nd walk over the Puente de San Martin
The medieval Sankt-Martin Bridge overlooks the Tejo River and was formerly built as a western access to Toledo. Furthermore, this transition from the late 14th century was to serve as an extension of the Puente de Alcantara. It spans the Tagus River in five arches, the middle of which has a remarkable span of 40 metres.3. Best viewpoints with panoramic view
A bird's eye view of Toledo is highly recommended. It's a good thing that the city has numerous viewing platforms. On the hill Cerro de la Virgen de Gracia you can enjoy a wonderful view of the monastery San Juan de los Reyes. And the Mirador del Valle offers a great view of the old town. The viewpoints Mirador de la Puerta del Sol and Mirador de Santa Ana are also worth a detour.
