Toledo stands virtually in the centre of Spain. Known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries, behind its walls. Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues. This great diversity of artistic styles makes the old quarter of the capital of Castile - La Mancha a real open-air museum, which has led to it being declared as a World Heritage Site. It is strategically situated on a rocky bluff dominating a gorge, and surrounded on all sides but the north by the fast-flowing Tagus.

Toledo is now the capital of the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha and, as such, has recovered some of its political lustre. In 1986 it was named a World Heritage Site.
