On November 26th, 1986, Unesco accepted Toledo as a World Heritage City.
Toledo has changed a lot during the last three decades. Of the almost thousand hotel places that there were in 1986, it has gotten to about 4,500 today. And from 16 hotels to 70. Visitor numbers are increasing. The year is not over and the number of tourists is close to 1,300,000 people.
Those are not the only changes during these thirty years. Only in population it has grown almost 50 percent, from little more than 58,000 inhabitants in 1986 to almost 84,000 today, and this taking in mind that the 20th century came with 23,000 neighbors.
The Declaration of World Heritage came to Toledo 3 years after being designated capital of Castilla-La Mancha. It was in 1983. And, it is not the only Heritage City.
Toledo has the second largest historical center in the world for the concentration of monuments after Rome and from that date is ready to celebrate it all over.
A city that deserves this title with a lot of pride, certainly a city that impresses from the first step that we take on its streets, is history on all sides, it is culture, it is impressive.
