A getaway to Toledo
Best season: all year
Combine with: tapas tour, tour around Spain
Toledo is just an hour drive from Madrid and it is another jewel that has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
A walk through its impressive old town will make you travel through time as it keeps the layout from the Middle Ages.
You could spend the whole day in just its Cathedral: the Chapel of the Kings, the Custody of gold, the wonderful paintings of the sacristy, the choir ...
The church of Santo Tomé is also worth a visit, where you can enjoy the famous painting "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz" by El Greco.
