Learn Spanish and discover Toledo

Excursion: Toledo

The Bisagra gate, dominated by a big Imperial coat of arms, is the main access to the city within the walls. Inside the walls, a labyrinth of small streets form the old town.

Toledo has many places of interest, among with we can highlight the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and the Santa María Cathedral, of 13th century Gothic style. Toledo has also been the place of birth or residence of artists like Garcilaso de la Vega or El Greco, among many others.

In addition to that, Toledo is witness of deeply rooted popular traditions, such as the yearly Most Holy Corpus Christi procession, declared to be a festival of International Tourist Interest.

When you visit Toledo you cannot miss its gastronomy, which has various specialties based on hunting products, such as the stewed partridge, the Toledo-style quail or the deer with mushrooms. As in the rest of the Manchego provinces, the "pisto" (a dish made of pepper, tomato and onion), the Castilian soup or the "migas" ("crumbs") are the base of any menu, which is usually crowned with the final taste of the famous Manchego cheese and the marzipan (a pastry made of mashed almonds and sugar). These dishes can be paired with wines from La Mancha with protected designation of origin
