Now, one of the reasons to visit Spain is just the country itself! How important it is not only to the United States, let's face it, without Queen Isabella, Christopher Columbus would have never found the Caribbean. Yes the Caribbean (Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Cuba), yes, I can hear it now, that others were here first, etc. Laughing.
Toledo, Spain is one of the many reasons to visit Spain! Why? You Say!
One of the reasons, whether or not you are a religious person; all 3 main religions have had influence in the area (Christian, Muslim, and Jewish) from the Moorish gate (Puerta de Bisagrai), to the Gothic convent of San Juan de los Reyes. Toledo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of all these wonderful cultural attractions throughout the city.
Another reason is that it was immortalized by Spain's renowned artistic genius El Greco in a cityscape that currently hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The city has changed little since El Greco captured it on canvas in 1597, with its golden spires and Gothic buildings spreading across the Tagus River Gorge, overlooking the plains of New Castille. Toledo was established by the Romans in about 192 BC and some Roman ruins are still visible outside the city walls.
Spain itself is the 3rd largest UNESCO Country in the World. If you are unsure what UNESCO is. A World Heritage Site is a place that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as of special cultural or physical significance.
