Toledo





Just a few hours after our departure from León and following a quick stop at our "residence" in Madrid, the students found themselves in the timeless city of Toledo, located on the Río Tajo. As the former capital of Spain, Toledo is recognized as one of the few places where Christians, Moors and Jews co-existed and traces of each group can be found throughout the city. Here, students visited the Cathedral (which is like an art museum as it contains several paintings by El Greco, Goya, Tiziano, Rubens, Van Dyck and Rafael),the Iglesia de Santo Tomé (where they saw the famous painting by El Greco “El entierro del Conde Orgaz”) and the Sinagoga del Tránsito, which houses the museo sefardí.
