Love is in the air when you drop in on Spain’s most iconic, shining city on a hill! Beautiful Toledo is an ancient gem full of winding streets, soaring bell towers and eclectic architecture reflecting the impact of the Islamic, Jewish and Christian faiths upon its development. These factors are also what make Toledo an ideal place to stage your destination wedding during your upcoming holiday in Spain.
Drop in on the city’s most emblematic sites and surrender to love’s eternal grace from the comfort of one of Paradores’ luxury and historic hotels’ most stand-out locations, Parador Toledo, a charming Castilian building with unrivalled views of the city, and numerous halls where your wedding dreams can come true!
Built on a grand hill overlooking the Tagus River, Toledo has long been one of Spain’s most beloved cities. Once the capital of the Spanish Empire, it is home to grand buildings of all sorts, ranging from the mighty Cathedral (with impossibly high vaulted ceilings) to the majestic Alcázar fortress, once home to the Kings.
Take your special someone on a visit to romantic sites including the Elizabethan San Juan de los Reyes Monastery, elegant Cristo de la Luz Mosque, or the old El Tránsito Synagogue, a jewel of Mudéjar architecture that currently hosts the city’s Sephardic Museum.
Spend an afternoon getting to know the works of the city’s famed adopted son, El Greco, at the El Greco Museum, or simply take in the spectacular light and countryside with a picnic in the surrounding hills - bliss defined!
The perfect wedding location
With its exceptional views of the World Heritage City and unrivalled access to its wonders, Parador Toledo is the perfect spot in which to stage your Spanish wedding.
