With a beguiling mix of Moorish, Jewish and Christian heritage, few places capture the storied past of Spain quite like Toledo. It was painted tirelessly by adoptive son El Greco, too, imbuing the city with a rich artistic streak. What’s more, a spectacular hilltop setting gives countless dramatic vantage points over the surrounding plains. It’s popular with day trippers, but to really get under its skin linger a little longer in these apartment-style stays, bookable on Culture Trip.

If you’re travelling to Toledo in a large group, these three-bedroom apartments accommodate up to eight guests. While set in the heart of the old town, updated interiors are bright and modern, with furnishings and facilities to match. Kitchenettes mean you won’t have to pop out for meals – though, you should, since the city’s multicultural past reveals melting-pot restaurants today. Premium bedding and blackout blinds aid a good night’s sleep. Head upstairs to the shared rooftop terrace for panoramas of the surrounding cityscape.
