The summer in Toledo offers ideal nights to learn the most important secrets of the city. If you also want to know its most outstanding monuments and let yourself be guided by the interior of the Cathedral, here are five routes that we recommend for this summer in the Imperial City.
We offer you below five routes that will help you to know a little better the secrets and the enormous history that accumulate the old Toledan stones. This city is not known in a morning, or an afternoon, coming to the race of Madrid and fleeing again to the few hours. If you do this you will miss the best part of this city: its nights. Walk through dark sheds, listen to old legends in corners with magic, visit millenary subways … All this is possible in this city.
