Toledo and its outdoor side
The province of Toledo is better known for its culture than for its nature. Its capital is known as "the city of the three cultures" and is one of the most visited places in Spain.
Reasons, then, do not miss to visit it. But if, in addition, I tell you that this city a World Heritage Site is also the gateway to know some of the most interesting natural sites of Castilla-La Mancha you will have removed all doubts.
Almost without leaving the city, you can enjoy some activities in nature in Toledo. The Tagus River, as it passes through the capital, draws a deep sickle in which you can practice hiking or cycling.
Not to mention that it is an exceptional place to observe thousands of birds, such as herons and cormorants. If after the ride, you want to release adrenaline, enjoy the longest urban zip line in Europe, crossing over the Tagus itself, it may be a good idea.
From there, we went to the steppes to continue with the birdwatching. Species such as the little bustard, the great bustard or the Montagu's harrier are waiting for you. But it is to the south, already in the Montes de Toledo (on horseback between this and the province of Ciudad Real) where is the true paradise for activities in nature in Toledo: the National Park of Cabañeros.
