About the Toledo Walk in Madrid
A center of culture and religion since the Middle Ages, Toledo has been home to Jews, Christians, and Muslims from the Mahgreb. Now a World Heritage site, the churches, synagogues, and mosques that still dot this beautifully preserved city are a testimony to the heterogenous history of Europe.
During this excursion from Madrid, we'll join a scholar from the Context network to explore the architectural and social history of Toledo to offer insight into the city that is traditionally known as ‘the melting pot of three cultures.' Our seminar-like discussion will begin on the 20-minute train ride from Madrid, during which our scholar will lay out the basic timeline of Toledo's history and some of main themes to think about. Once in Toledo, we'll begin our walk at the Cathedral, whose origins go back to the seventh century, and boasts a superb collection of Gothic altarpieces, funerary monuments and choir stalls, as well as a rare religious painting by Goya.
