Toledo was one of the few cities in Europe that was thoroughly influenced by three different religions during the Medieval period. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism have all played a vital role in the cultural development of the city. The jurisdiction of Toledo passed from the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, to the Visigothic rule after the fall of Rome, the Arabs between 700 and 1085 AD, and finally, the Christian rulers led by Alfonso VI after the Reconquista. Magnificent buildings like the Museum of Santa Cruz and the Puerta del Sol constructed by the legendary Knights Hospitaller adorn every corner of the city.
Segovia is named after the medieval Alcazar (Moorish castle) located in the city. It is one of Spain’s most iconic castles due to its fascinating shape and architecture. It has served as a state prison, a royal palace, and a military academy in different eras since it was built. Today, it is one of the country’s most prominent museums. The city also has a Roman aqueduct and one of the last Gothic cathedrals to be built on the continent. This tour will take you through all of these exquisite sights and ensure that you have a thoroughly informative and enjoyable experience.
