Even though Toledo can be a challenge for veggies, it is very worth it, so, don’t miss it just because there’s no any vegan restaurant in Toledo, we have found the way to a Vegan Toledo.
Toledo is a medieval city close to Madrid which counts with a precious artistic and cultural heritage protected by UNESCO.
Enjoying the ancient corners and cobblestone streets of Toledo is an authentic experience, a way to transport yourself to a different age.
You will discover why Toledo is called the city of the three cultures, due to all of these amazing facts, we organize a fantastic private tour that lasts around 7 hours.
We´ll go from Madrid to Toledo by train, which is the most sustainable transport. Then, we´ll have 3 hours to visit the centre of Toledo and its most representative monuments by foot with our local guide, and lastly, a delicious vegan lunch before going back to taste the traditional flavors of this region.
Vegan options are not so obvious there, and there are no vegan restaurants, so thanks to this Experience, we’ll make the best of the regional vegan gastronomy of Toledo.

Of ancient origin, Toledo is mentioned by the Roman historian Livy as urbs parva, sed loco munita (“a small city, but fortified by location”).Conquered by the Roman general Marcus Fulvius Nobilior in 193 BCE, it became an important Roman colony and the capital of Carpentia. The city was the residence of the Visigothic court in the 6th century and site of the famous councils, the third of which (589) was particularly important because of King Recared’s conversion to Christianity. During the Moorish period (712–1085), it was the home of an important Mozarab community (Arabic-speaking Christians). Taken by King Alfonso VI in 1085, it became the most important political and social center of Castile. It was the scene of a fusion of Christian, Arab, and Jewish culture, an example of which was the School of Translators (Escuela de Traductores) established by Alfonso X (the Wise) in the 13th century. The city’s importance declined after Philip II made Madrid his capital (1560). Toledo is considered most representative of Spanish culture, and its historic centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986. Its rocky site is traversed by narrow, winding streets, with steep gradients and rough surfaces, centring on the Plaza del Zocodover. Two bridges cross the Tagus: in the northeast is the bridge of Alcántara, at the foot of the medieval castle of San Servando, parts of which date from Roman and Moorish times; in the northwest is the bridge of San Martín, dating from the late 13th century. Parts of the walls of Toledo are of Visigothic origin, although most are Moorish or Christian. There are well-preserved gateways from various periods, including the Puerta Vieja de Bisagra (10th century), traditionally used by Alfonso VI in 1085. Important buildings showing Islamic influence include the former mosques of Bib-al-Mardom (Cristo de la Luz; 10th century), with interesting cross vaulting, and of Las Toernerías; the Mudéjar synagogues of Santa María la Blanca (12th century) and El Tránsito (14th century; housing the Sephardic museum); and the Mudéjar churches of San Román, of Cristo de la Vega, of Santiago del Arrabal, and of Santo Tomé. The last has a fine tower and a chapel containing the painting Burial of the Conde de Orgaz by El Greco.
