Things to do in Toledo + Central Spain

There are plenty of things to do in Toledo if you like a bit of history and a lot of amazing architecture. Most of Old Toledo can easily be seen on foot, so you won’t need wheels to get to the best sights in the city. Visit the Alcázar fortress to overlook the city and the Cathedral of Toledo, modeled after the Bourges Cathedral. See the Synagogue of El Transito and Mosque of Cristo de la Luz, predating the expulsion of the Moors and the Jews. Check out the scene at Plaza de Zocodover, northeast of the cathedral, full of outdoor cafes and buzzing with young Toledanos.

For art history buffs, there are more great things to do in Toledo. El Greco, the famous painter, sculptor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance, lived and worked in Toledo for the latter part of his life. Visit the Museo de El Greco, a recreation of the artist's home, which has several of his important works that he completed while living in the city.
