It must be said that the streets of Toledo are not very lively during the week, because few places remain open until the wee hours of the morning. Your best bet for midweek entertainment is a trip to the movies in either the Multicines María Cristina or the Multicines Mayoral. It is also worth checking out whether the Teatro de Rojas has any interesting cultural offerings. While Toledo nights can be full of energy and all-night drinking and dancing, days are reserved for more cultural affairs. You can spend the day walking through the twisted streets admiring the architecture of the city's many monuments, don't miss the beautiful, Gothic Cathedral that stores a large collection of religious ornaments and paintings. The Museo del Ejército is located inside Alcázar castle along with the library. The Casa Museo de El Greco, in the old jewish quarter has some spectacular pieces of art from this famous painter. Also in the vicinity is the Sinagoga del Tránsito, which houses the Sefardí Museum. The Iglesia de Santo Tomé proudly displays the most famous El Greco painting, El entierro del Conde de Orgaz. The Museo de Santa Cruz exhibits more of El Greco's art along with some archeological pieces and examples of popular art. For contemporary art, visit Museo de Victorio Macho and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, that features paintings from Antonio López, among others. Everything changes on Thursdays. This is the day when students from the Castilla-La Mancha University hold their faculty parties, so if you are out on this night you will come across a lot of university students. The city's Historical Quarter has more to offer. A great place to go is the spacious La Taberna de Garcilaso, where, if you're lucky, you will catch live music, magic and comedy shows. The Pícaro is similar. It's worth a visit for their well-presented cocktails alone. For anyone with energy left to spare, you can always start over at the cervecerías
