IMPERIAL TOLEDO & WINERY TOUR SMALL GROUP ENGLISH ONLY
Have a wonderful day visiting Toledo! Located 70 km away from Madrid is Toledo, a beautiful city-museum declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudéjar, Renaissance and Baroque style). Toledo is called the “City of the Three Cultures”, since Christians, Muslims and Jews lived together. In the XVI century, it was also home to the great painter El Greco. It is known as The Mosque of El Cristo de la Luz, The old Bib-al-Mardum Mosque, or Valmardón Mosque. However the history of this building as a mosque ended in 1186, true reflection of Caliphic architecture. The visit continues with tour to the inside of the Cathedral. Its architecture shows all the stages of Spanish Gothic, and the inside of the building contains a large number of artworks (stained glass, choir, main altar, different chapels, El Greco paintings, etc.). Following that we will see the Church of St. Tomé, home to ‘El Entierro del señor de Orgaz’ El Greco’s masterpiece; and the Synagogue of Sta. María la Blanca. The tour will finish with a demonstration of the millenary Damascene technique (incrustation of precious metals on steel) and a trip to Toledo’s viewpoint, to enjoy its panoramic view. Once we have enjoyed ourselves in Toledo, we will head towards to Madrid around 14.30h, but we will stop in Bargas on our way. There we will visit Finca Loranque and its wine cellars and we will also have the chance to taste some of its wines.
