06 Jul ‘UNKNOWN TOLEDO’ New Visits Available
Toledo is one of Spain’s most historic cities and is less than a one-hour journey from Madrid. For those already familiar with its main sites, Valesa Cultural Services can now offer more visits to previously unexplored sites. Among the newly opened sites are the fascinating archaeological remains of Roman baths, the so-called ‘Caves of Hercules’ that figure in legends associated with Toledo’s foundation and early history, the Jewish House (with an area possibly used long ago for ritual purification baths), the Church of El Salvador with remains from an earlier mosque, and preserved architectural and archaeological remains of Islamic baths. Another possibility is to climb a recently-restored Mudéjar church towers in order to appreciate their construction techniques, as well as the view when you reach the top!
