It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style). Toledo is often called the 'City of the Three Cultures', since Christians, Muslims, and Jews lived there together. In the XVI century, it was also the place of residence of the great painter El Greco.
