Museum of Santa Cruz: The Museum of Santa Cruz in Toledo is considered one of the most important museums in Spain, not only because of the uniqueness of the headquarters, the former Hospital de Santa Cruz del Cardenal Mendoza, but also for the richness and variety of its collections.

Church of Santo Tomé – Burial of the Lord of Orgaz: From the early fourteenth century, architecturally highlights its magnificent Mudejar tower with a square floor plan in brick and masonry taped.  Inside is the masterpiece of El Greco “The Burial of the Lord of Orgaz”.

Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes: Erected by the Catholic Monarchs to commemorate the battle of Toro (1476), the general layout of the construction is the work of Juan Guas and is one of the best sets of Spanish-Flemish Gothic.

Museum of the Councils and Visigothic Culture (Church of San Román): The Museum of the Councils and Visigothic Culture is located in the Church of San Román, an exponent of the first Mudejar style in Toledo (13th century). In the museum there are material vestiges of the ancient capital of the Visigothic kingdom of Toledo.

Sephardic Museum – Synagogue of El Tránsito: The museum is located in the Synagogue of El Tránsito or Synagogue of Samuel ha – Levi, considered the most beautiful medieval synagogue preserved in the world.

El Greco Museum: The museum is currently the only one in Spain dedicated to the figure of the painter and its main purpose is to transmit and make society understand the figure of El Greco, as well as the influence of his work and personality in the Toledo of the early seventeenth century.

Synagogue of Santa María La Blanca: Major synagogue of the Aljama of Toledo, erected, according to an inscription carved on a fragment of a beam, in the year four thousand nine hundred and forty (1180 A.D.).   It was rebuilt in the 13th century and converted into a Christian temple in 1405.

Cristo de la Luz Mosque: It is one of the most important monuments of Hispano-Muslim and Mudejar architecture in Spain, built in 999, 10th century. Small as jewels are, this valuable millenary building is a unique example of the survival of the art of Al-Andalus: a mosque or small oratory from the Caliphate period to which two centuries later, when it was transformed into a church, an apse was added following the style of the primitive building, giving rise to Mudejar art, in perfect combination and symbiosis.
