The Lower Vega of Toledo

The Lower Vega of ToledoLa Vega Baja de Toledo

” La Vega Baja de Toledo” is the title of the first book edited by Toletum Visigodo in collaboration with the Fundación Cultura y Deporte, the Toledo City Council and the Junta de Castilla-La Mancha. Over the course of five chapters, a journey is made through the past, present and future of this territory so deeply rooted in Toledo’s history.

The book opens, as a prologue, with the intervention of the President of Castilla-La Mancha, José María Barreda, in the act of imposing the medal of honour of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando for its defence and commitment to historical heritage.

The work can be understood as a true encyclopaedia of the Vega Baja and this was the intention of his project. In the first chapter, “Territory: History, cartography and image”, the Toledan archaeologist Ramón Villa and Diego Peris make a detailed study of the historical evolution through the centuries, up to our days, from the engravings and cartographic plans in which the Vega is present. Together with the description of the territory and its evolution, an abundant graphic documentation of plans, photographs and historical drawings gives an account of what this great space has been in its journey through the history of Spain and Toledo.
