The historic center of Toledo, only 42 miles from Madrid, has 2,000 years of rich history with Jews, Romans, Christians, Muslims, and even Visigoths.

The Romans first used this city as a crossroads until the Visigoth King Atanagild moved his capital to Toledo. Muslims then took over the city, after which the city became independent and was a center for learning and the arts. Next, it became a seat of the Catholic church.

Many different cultures lived together peacefully until Granada fell and everyone was expected to convert to Christianity or run for their lives. Toledo survived the Spanish civil war, and today it is a world monument.
