Toledo is a World Heritage Site that embodies the complex cultural history of Spain while remaining a forward-moving, modern city.
On the 10th (Tue), pause for some serene contemplation at Mosque of Christ of the Light, take an in-depth tour of Alcazar - Biblioteca de Castilla-La Mancha, then don't miss a visit to Plaza De Zocodover, then take in the views from Alcantara Bridge, and finally don't miss a visit to Puerta de Bisagra.
