Toledo (Province)

Castilla-La Mancha

The province is in central Spain, in the north-west of the region of Castilla–La Mancha, of which the city of Toledo is also the capital. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are numerous heritage sites all around the province. Apart from the capital, which throughout history has been an outstanding example of the peaceful co-existence of three cultures (Jewish, Christian and Muslim), other places well worth visiting include Talavera de la Reina (the most populated city in the province) and Carranque, the site of the Carranque Archaeological Park.

Toledo is famed for its ceramics (pottery from Talavera de la Reina and Puente del Arzobispo is listed as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO); and above all for its religious festivities surrounding the feast day of Corpus Christi and Holy Week (in the city of Toledo), both awarded the designation of International Tourist Interest.The local cuisine is particularly notable for slow-cooked stews and game.
