Toledo Private Tour. Our Private Tour of Toledo will show you the elegance and serenity of the ancient capital of Visigoth Spain. We will stroll leisurely through the city’s medieval streets, whose layout has remained undisturbed for centuries, and visit the ancient mosques, synagogues and churches which earned Toledo the name of the ‘city of the three cultures’. Our bespoke tour will also take in the artistic legacy of people like Goya, Van Dyck, and, of course, the city’s most famous artist: El Greco.
The city of Toledo sums up the whole history of Spain.
Toledo has more than 3500 years of history. Through our Private Tour of Toledo you will see that its strategic location (in the center of Spain) and being bordered by the river have made it the capital of civilizations and kingdoms throughout the centuries.
Toledo was founded by the Romans, some 200 years before Christ, and in the 6th century AD was chosen as the capital of the Visigothic kingdom (the civilisation after the fall of the Roman Empire). Toledo was also the capital of Muslim Spain and after the Christian Reconquest with the reign of Charles V.
The Middle Ages were the golden age for Toledo and its boom in astrology, astronomy, medicine and the school of translators. Today, Toledo is a compendium of this historical and artistic wealth of Spain over the centuries.
Toledo is known as “The city of the three cultures”, as between the years 711 and 1085 a spirit of tolerance reigned which allowed the peaceful coexistence between Christians, Jews and Muslims in respect and peace.
Through our Private Tour of Toledo, feel, smell and perceive that mixture of cultures that have blended together harmoniously. Toledo currently has two Synagogues, one from the 12th century and the other from the 14th century, with Muslim remains from the 7th,10th and 11th centuries and many important churches such as the Primate Cathedral of Spain (the main one in Spain).
The gastronomy, music and architecture in Toledo are witnesses of the cultural fusion of the Arab, the Sephardic Jewish and Christian influences. Walking through Toledo (one of the largest historic centres in Europe), is to see, hear and feel in the air and on the skin all these centuries of history.
It is a dream. A living city.
In the 16th century, Toledo’s decadence began and this plunged it into a “bubble of oblivion” that makes it still such a unique and beautiful city today.
