Nestled in a meander of the Tagus River, Toledo is the capital of Castilla-La Mancha. It was first a Roman colony that became the centre of the Visigoth kingdoms and a place of residence for Arabs, Jews, and Christians in the Middle Ages. This explains the presence of numerous historic and religious monuments, starting with its imposing gothic cathedral. A beautiful altarpiece, on which scenes of the life of Christ are depicted, ornaments the main altar. The sacristy contains paintings by El Greco, Titian, Van Dyck, and Goya. Fans of El Greco, do not miss the 'The Burial of Count Orgaz', exhibited in the church of Santo Tomé.
