Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986. Toledo is in central Spain, south of Madrid. Under the Moorish Caliphate of Cordoba, from the eight century, Toledo experienced La Convivencia, an extended period when Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in harmony. Today, it attracts an equally cosmopolitan crowd, being one of Spain’s most attractive tourist destinations, with its magnificent setting, picturesque old town and a wealth of architecture and art treasures to be found.
It is impossible to describe all there is to see in this magical city. Starting from the busy Plaza de Zocodover, go north to the Miradero, south to the Alcazar or east to the Hospital of Santa Cruz. Do all three and you will understand why Toledo stands as a living monument to the history of Spain….and appreciate that a month here would not be enough. But if you see nothing else, at least be sure not to miss two of Toledo’s most iconic buildings – Spain’s principal cathedral, the country’s finest Gothic cathedral after Burgos, and the impressive Alcazar, which saw the last of many actions in the Spanish Civil War, holding out against republican forces for 68 days.
Despite a challenge from Malaga, Seville remains the political, business and cultural capital of southern Spain. It bestrides the busy Guadalquivir River, which is navigable to the Atlantic coast. In common with much of Spain, Seville’s recent economic growth has been rapid and it now sits at the centre of a major commercial and industrial conurbation.
For all that, evidence of its long history is everywhere, and despite the hustle and bustle of a modern city there are powerful reminders of traditionally flamboyant Spanish life to be found in the man barrios (old quarters) with their narrow streets and charming balconied houses. There are enough sights in Seville to satisfy even the most compulsive heritage addict and its possible to spend day wandering about, soaking up the atmosphere. The Roman period is represented by various ruins, including an aqueduct. Well-preserved remains of Italica, 8km out of the city, give a wonderful impression of which Roman Seville must have been like. Moorish influence is also evident, with the Giralda minaret tower being a fine example. The 15th century Seville Cathedral itself is a vast, medieval Gothic triumph with a stunning richly gilded interior.
