Toledo, Spain’s Historic, Spiritual, and Artistic Capital

Toledo, Spain’s Historic, Spiritual, and Artistic Capital
Spain’s historic capital has 2,000 years of tangled history crowded onto a high, rocky perch. Centuries later, when the Christians conquered the city, they made it Spain’s political and religious capital. Today, while small in population and of minor importance politically, Toledo remains a vital center of culture, art and religion. For centuries, Christians, Jews, and Muslims enjoyed this city together. But that was also the year that Spanish Christians exiled the Jews and successfully kicked the Moors back into Africa.
