Starting as a Roman municipum, the city of Toledo was destined for greatness, going on to become capital of the Visigoth kingdom, a Muslim stronghold, capital of Spain and, today, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that attracts people from around the world.
Known as the "city of three cultures", Toledo was home to three very different cultures - Christians, Jews and Moors - who coexisted peacefully for centuries. This was miraculous at the time, as the rest of the country succumbed to religious strife in the years of the Spanish Inquisition leading up to the expulsion of the Jews and Moors in 1492 and 1502, respectively. This peaceful coexistence and mutual respect led to the preservation of buildings, designs and places of worship from all three religions.
First off is the stunning Cathedral, whose construction began in the 13th century. It has artwork by Spain's most famous painters, an incredible multi-story altarpiece and an absolutely breathtaking interior. A handful of other churches and convents represent Toledo's Christian present, most notably the 10th century San Sebastián Church and the 15th century San Juan de los Reyes Monastery.
