City of Three CulturesWandering through the winding cobbled streets of the old town, the presence of the three monotheistic religions is clearly evident. The magnificent 13th-century gothic Cathedral with its art gallery containing works by Rubens, Goya and El Greco. The 1000 yr old Mosque with its Mudejar and Christian artworks. To the three remaining pre-16th century synagogues in the town centre. All well worth a visit on your trip to a Bed and Breakfast Toledo.
AlcazarWherever you stay at your Bed and Breakfast Toledo you will be overlooked by the imposing fortress of Alcazar. Originally used as a Roman palace in the 3rd century it has led an important part in Toledo's military history. After the civil war of independence it was converted into a military museum and now houses vast collections of war memorabilia.
Artistic LegacyEl Greco was a Greek painter who rose to great fame in the 16th century in the city. His style was greatly ahead of time and made a massive impact on the art world many centuries later. He is said to have inspired many cubist and impressionist artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Jackson Pollock. His great works can be seen on display in the cathedral and in the El Greco museum. Toledo is also famous for its Damascene handicraft. A Morrish process where gold is fused with blackened iron to make beautiful interlaced jewellery and ornaments. Examples are to be found all over the city but can be overpriced so be sure to shop around.
