The views of Toledo from Mirador del Valle is breathtaking. It’s like a place that only appears in your dreams.
Toledo is a medieval Spanish city popularly known as “The Imperial City” where the Roman Emperor, Charles V, once held his court here. On the other hand, Toledo is also christened as the “City of Three Cultures” due to its rich historical co-existence of Jews, Muslims
Walk around the city – before tour buses and day-trippers from Madrid arrive – and you’ll feel like you’re time traveling.
It is possible to visit Toledo for a day trip. There’s a morning train from Madrid that goes to Toledo and back to Madrid in the afternoon. Their train station is a historical building in itself and it has its own quaint beauty. You can buy your train tickets HERE.
If you’re planning to stay there for a night, you can get some discounted hotel prices HERE.
Bear in mind that the train station isn’t a walking distance to downtown Toledo. So, I’d recommend that instead of taking a taxi, buy the sightseeing bus tour ticket. You can buy it at the train station or pay the exact amount to the bus driver. Don’t forget to ask for the route map. Once you’re on the bus, your first destination should be: the Mirador del Valle.
Most people stay here for 15-30 minutes. But, I did stay for an hour and a half here – just admiring the views.
