Toledo has an amazingly rich history and every visitor leaves wanting to return. Its buildings and streets have changed very little over the centuries and you get the feeling that you have been transported back in time to a bygone era. It really is a museum in itself where the sky is the ceiling and the heavens the roof. The buildings are awe inspiring, the people friendly and you really know that you are in an oasis of something very special from the moment you enter through the old town walls. Coupled with the fact that the city has been given the title of Toledo Capital Española de la Gastronomía 2016, translated Toledo Spanish Capital of Gastronomy 2016 the town really is an amalgamation of everything we love here at Eat Play Stay Spain. Furthermore as the capital city of the region of Castilla–La Mancha there is much more to tempt the visitor outside the city walls, from the vast vineyards and olive groves to walks in the countryside where a peaceful afternoon is not out of reach.
Toledo is known as 'the city of three cultures' - Christianity, Judaism and Islam have all influenced this city, behind the city walls in the architecture, in the food and in the cities art, it really is a museum with the sky as its ceiling. The history of its forefathers has left behind an amazing legacy that leaves its visitors in awe.
