This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Iglesia de Santo Tome, Plaza Conde 4, 45002 Toledo Spain
The parish church must have been founded after the Christian Reconquista of the city by Alfonso VI in 1085, as the first news that we have of its existence is from 1142. From the first Mudejar building, it has kept the large multifoil arch superimposed upon the main arch that separates the main nave from the presbytery together with the sturdy buttresses of this part of the nave and a small trefoil arch on a brick frieze arranged in Mudejar style that survives in the high part in what used to be the semicircular sanctuary of the original single nave church.
Duration: 40 minutesStop At:
Synagogue of Saint Mary the White, Calle Reyes Catolicos 4, 45002 Toledo Spain
This Mudéjar construction was built in 1180. It has five naves separated by pillars supporting horseshoe arches. In the 15th century it was converted into a church, although today it is simply a monument which is open to visitors. It has a coffered wooden ceiling, Plateresque altars and an altarpiece by the school of Berruguete.

Alcazar de Toledo, Calle de La Union s/n, 45001 Toledo Spain
It is today the site of the city's Army Museum. Its construction dates from Roman times. During the reigns of Alfonso VI and Alfonso X 'the Wise' it was rebuilt and became the first example of a square fortress with towers on the corners. It was once again rebuilt under Emperor Charles V, on this occasion by the architect Alonso de Covarrubias. The façades are Renaissance in style, and it has towers and crenellated defences according to a preliminary design by Alonso de Covarrubias, subsequently completed by Juan de Herrera. After the last reconstruction it became the site of the Army offices and museum.
