Things to Do in Toledo by Oasis Backpackers Hostel

In Toledo

Distinct from the more modern cities of central Spain, Toledo is a history lover’s wet dream. Innumerable ancient structures, several breathtaking views, and truly remarkable museums of art, architecture, and archaeology make this storied city a cultural and historical gem that, somehow, has yet to be saturated by tourists and still retains an authentic feel.


 

10 Things To Do

Toledo is one of Spain’s oldest cities - rich with history, having been the long-time Spanish capital as well as an important centre of culture to the Romans, the Moors, Jews, Christians, and Visigoths. And yet, while steeped in rich history, modern Toledo embraces innovation and creativity - tangible in its active cultural and social scenes, which are all saturated with vibrant patrons and local zeal, welcoming visitors into a distinct and alluring community.
