We visited Toledo, the long-time capital of Spain, on a perfect day. We took the train station from Madrid from the Atoche Station at 9:20 and our guide met us at the train station at 9:53. Buy your tickets on line and even though you may not know your return time, you can always exchange your ticket for an earlier (but not later) departure. The cathedral is stunningly beautiful with unique art and history. The Jewish section of town is interesting as well, with but two remaining synagogues, one with Moorish architecture, the other with a comprehensive history of Judaism in general and in Spain specifically. Our guide took us into the basement of a Jewish home with a hidden Mikvah which we suspect was used by Marranos. We ended with El Greco's "Burial of the Count of Orgaz", surely his greatest painting. The guide also gave us a great recommendation for lunch, and after wandering for another couple hours we returned to Madrid at 5:30. Our best day in Spain.
My husband and I took a private tour with Angel, and local who loves his home town. The three hour tour flew by and we left we an appreciation for Toledo that we wouldn't have had otherwise. Angel was enthusiastic, engaging, and his love of his home and its history was inspriring. We highly recommend the tour.
