The imperial city of Toledo, approx. 65 km southwest of Madrid, is one of the oldest cities in Europe and home to El Greco’s art. Toledo has been known as a source of weaponry since Roman times. The church of San Tomé, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and the Santia María la Blanca synagogue are particularly impressive. The enchanting old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has what is probably Spain’s most impressively furnished cathedral. The quickest way to Toledo is by the Avant train, which departs from the Estacíon de Atocha in Madrid. The journey time is about half an hour. It’s a good idea to book your tickets online (renfe.com), because the trains are always full, and it will save you having to wait at the ticket counter.

Mercado de San Miguel is a wonderful old market hall with great stalls and restaurants. The products available here are all of a very high quality. The hall itself is really impressive, and offers plenty of options: it’s somewhere to do your daily shopping; it's a venue for various activities and exhibitions, for product tastings, or somewhere to stop off during a sightseeing tour.
