The Rich Heritage Of Toledo, Spain

Toledo Spain

Like most cities within Spain, Toledo has gone through many “owners” and cataclysmic transfers of ownership before becoming the face of tranquil radiance that it is today. After the Roman Empire collapsed, Toledo saw Visigoth, Moor and Christian leaders presiding over the region with marked amounts of turmoil and violence. There was one exception, however: for a brief period of time known as La Convivencia, the three major monotheistic religions (Judaism, Islam and Christianity, respectively) cast aside their weaponry and coexisted relatively peacefully.
