There are few cities where getting lost is such a pleasure. The narrow twisting streets of medieval Toledo hold delights and surprises around every corner.
You are never lost for long, however, because the rocky escarpment at the city’s edge drops sheer away to a meander in the Tagus River, which acts as a natural moat.
Just south of Madrid, Toledo was Spain’s first capital. Romans, Moors, Christians, and Jews have all left their mark on the city, which is as famous for forging the swords of Latin America’s conquistadors as it is for the paintings of El Greco.
