The British newspaper The Sun often recommends destinations around the world to its readers. Spain is one of the countries most frequently featured in the recommendations.

Once again, the newspaper recommends a Spanish city. A place that, according to the newspaper, is “rarely visited”. However, it “has been named one of the best city break destinations for this year.”

“People often visit places like Barcelona, Madrid and Seville for a weekend getaway. But there are many more cities that tourists could consider for a quick trip,” the article said. That’s Toledo, for example, an ancient walled city full of award-winning attractions and landmarks. The city is also close to several wine producers, and has a cheese museum.

Toledo is included in Lonely Planet’s list of the best places to visit in Spain in 2024. This guide recommends Toledo to visit its cobblestone streets full of historic buildings and enjoy the beautiful views outside the city walls.

But something that has caught the attention of The Sun’s journalists is its gastronomy, especially the Queso Manchego (cheese) and wine. In particular, they recommend a visit to the MQM (Museo del Queso Manchego). You can taste a lot of cheese and learn more about cheese production in the region.”

“The cheese museum isn’t the only place where you can enjoy the city’s local food and wine production,” the article said. “You can visit and explore the wine producers in the city’s area, including Pagos de Familia Vega Tolosa and others,” the article concludes.
