The starting point of this getaway will be Plaza Zocodover, the city's main square and nerve center. There you will come across the Alcázar de Toledo. The most beautiful thing about this fortress is on the outside, so we recommend that you go around it to see all its facades. Inside it houses the Museum of the Army and the Library of Castilla La Mancha, from where spectacular views of the city can be appreciated. If you want to see its interior, the complete visit to the Alcázar will take you at least 2 hours. The entrance is bought right there but because you do not have much time, you can do without entering. If you feel like going up to the cafeteria of the Library of the Alcázar, with free admission, from there you can enjoy spectacular views of the city while you rest or have a coffee. When you leave, go to the Catedral Primada de Toledo. This great Gothic-style cathedral with French influence, began to be built in 1226 on the foundations of the Visigothic cathedral of the 6th century, which was also used as a mosque. As soon as you arrive you will be impressed by the beauty of its architecture. If you walk around the building, you will discover its three magnificent façades: the main façade, the Clock Gate and the Lions Gate. If you want to enter, you can buy the ticket at the same venue, there is no other option. Inside is the Main Sacristy, of relevant importance because it is where the famous painting "El Expolio", by El Greco, a famous painter who lived in Toledo. Its bell, the largest in Spain with 18 tons, is another of the outstanding elements of this construction. Once you have visited the Primate Cathedral of Toledo, it is time to start your guided tour. Your guide will be waiting for you in the town hall square to give you your tourist bracelet and explain the history of three famous monuments in Toledo: the Church of Santo Tomé, modest but of great value for what it houses in its inside, the famous painting by El Greco, called “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz”; the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca, of Mudejar style that stands out for its ornamental interior and its white walls with horseshoe arches, and the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes. This monastery was ordered to be built by Isabella the Catholic as a place to bury her mortal remains and those of her husband. Although in the end it was not like that, you can get an idea of the dedication with which this monument was built. After visiting these monuments, it is time to continue your route on your own. Of course, to end the walk through the three cultures, you cannot miss the Cristo de la Luz Mosque, included in your tourist bracelet. It closes, like most monuments in Toledo, at 5:45 p.m., so try to be there at least 30 minutes before. Its architectural and decorative elements are a miniature sample of the Mosque of Cordoba, so surely this jewel of Islamic art and the legends it hides will not leave you indifferent. After this visit, you will be in the historic center where you can do some shopping, have a drink on a terrace or find a place to dine and enjoy Toledo at night, a beautiful city.
Today your getaway to Toledo ends. Take the opportunity before returning home to stroll through its steep alleys, make the last purchases and take some typical products of La Mancha. Another recommendation, if you have time, is to visit the Hercules Caves and the Roman Baths, both with free admission, or visit the rest of the monuments included in your tourist wristband since you can use it several days.
