Abstract It is said that to know the history of Toledo is to know the history of Spain. Using beautiful aerial and ground-level photography, this timeless program traces the chronology of that unique city, beginning with its mythical origins. Toledo's successive places in the Celtic, Roman, Visigothic, Moorish, Castilian, and modern Spanish civilizations are all explored. In addition, the city's status as a cradle of European learning and a religious melting pot is examined, as well as its role in the Inquisition. Numerous architectural landmarks such as the Alcazar are featured.
