Tourism in Toledo is nothing new. Since the seventeenth century travelers have been flocking to this city to see this charm that people have talk about throughout the years. From artists, religious leaders, and even celebrities today have visited this city for inspiration, tourism, and adventure. The likes of Alexandre Dumas, Gautier, Borrow and even Albert Einstein have visited this town, and all looking for what people call…The magic of Toledo. The best way to visit Toledo in a day A little more than 70 kilometers from the center of Madrid on the hills of Castilla la Mancha sits the historic town of Toledo. Known for being the point that united three different religions, and Jews, Christians, and Muslims all lived together in peace. It was also the capital of Spain up until 1560 when it reached its natural limit. The capital was then moved to Madrid, and Toledo remained on its little hill untouched or tarnished until the 19th century. It is today considered a cultural town, and is a living record that expresses both the good, and the bad, the Spain kingdom has been through. But this is only the tip of the iceberg if you want to talk about how deep the history of this town really goes, and the magical sense you only get when you walk through its cobblestone streets. It is this magic that has made this tourist and historic destination so special. Undoubtedly, being a site with so much historical value and so many hidden places in its small cobblestone streets, seeing Toledo without the help of an expert can make your trip incomplete. Therefore we recommend taking a guided tour of the town, as did these Servantrip customers from the United States.
