Finale Highlight Concert: The CSUSB & MMC choirs perform at Iglesia de Santo Tomè in Toledo on Wednesday, June 30, at 8 pm

Incantato Tours proudly presents the CSUSB & MMC choirs at Iglesia de Santo Tomè in Toledo on June 30 at 8 pm. The church dates from the 12th century, although it was completely rebuilt in the early 14th century by the Count of Orgaz. The tower is one of the best examples of the Mudéjar art characteristic of Toledo. The two upper sections are made of brick, with two groups of two and three windows with pointed horseshoe arches scalloped with other lobed arches. The interior is home to one of El Greco’s most famous paintings, the Burial of the Count of Orgaz, which is on display in a special room. For more info (in Spanish), click here.
