The famed city of Toledo is located in the independent community of Castilla-La Mancha, situated only 71 kilometers from Madrid, the capital of Spain. The city is found on the top of a hill about 100m high, surrounded by the river Tajo. Toledo is considered most representative of Spanish culture, and its historic centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986. Toledo is a magic place, probably one of the most spectacular cities in the world. The buildings and winding streets contained within the old city walls hold hundreds of years of history

Brussels is quickly gaining a reputation as city with its small town charm, trendy bars and restaurants, fabulous food, great nightlife, fantastic shopping, numerous museums, and other attractions.
