Toledo Day Trips from Madrid

Toledo Day Trips from Madrid

The UNESCO World Heritage–listed city of Toledo is widely considered to be the architectural, artistic, and historic heart of Spain. Here’s how to take a half- or full-day tour from Madrid and discover Toledo’s vast collection of El Greco artwork, quiet cobblestone alleys, and medieval sites.

Half-Day Tours

Half-day tours to the World Heritage Site of Toledo gives you around three hours in the city, enough time to hit the highlights of Old Town. Admire top sights such as the Santa Maria la Blanca museum and former synagogue, the Synagogue of El Transito, 13th-century Toledo Cathedral—considered among the finest examples of Renaissance architecture in Europe—and the Museo del Greco, once home to Spanish Renaissance artist El Greco. Time permitting, you can also stroll through Toledo’s historic Jewish quarter before journeying back to Madrid.

Full-Day Tours

With more time at your disposal, take in more of the sights and hear more of the stories that make historic Toledo so special. Visit Mezquita de Cristo de la Luz, a beautiful 10th-century mosque, later converted to a church; explore the mighty Alcazar of Toledo fortress; and admire El Greco masterpieces likeThe Burial of the Count of Orgaz in the church of St. Tome. Alternatively, head into the nearby vineyards on a wine tour and sample some of the diverse wines for which Spain is famous. It’s also possible to combine a visit to Toledo with a stop in nearby Segovia, home to attractions including an ancient Roman aqueduct and a Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral.
