Toledo Photos | A UNESCO World Heritage Site Close To Madrid

Toledo Mirador |

Planning to visit Madrid, Spain? Toledo is a UNESCO World Heritage site that is about an hour away from Madrid. Here are some Toledo photos from a day trip that I took during my multiple visits to Toledo.

When I was in Madrid in 2011, I took a bus and did a day trip while my friend was at work. On my subsequent visits, I went via car. If you’re interested in some tips on how to get to Toledo, click here for my old post.



  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
