Toledo’s medieval era was punctuated by freedom of cultural expression and religious harmony. The Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca is one of the best examples of the religious diversity that was prevalent during the 11th and 12th centuries. It was designed by Islamic architects for Jewish use, and it was built during the reign of a Christian king. The typical Mudejar construction style is almost immediately recognizable. The Iglesia de Santo Tome is another cross-cultural monument. The tower is inlaid with glazed ceramic and built in Mudejar style, although it is used as a Christian church. It is well-known for housing El Greco’s legendary painting: The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. The Monastery of San Juan de Los Reyes was built by King Ferdinand II and Isabella I of Castille to celebrate the birth of Prince John. It is a prime example of Isabelline Style Spanish architecture, which incorporates both Gothic and Islamic styles. The entire city is filled with innumerable monuments from the medieval period.
