Toledo is a little bit like Sheffield - only a little bit mind you - the thing they have in common is steel. Like Sheffield, Toledo is famous for its steel and, in particular, swords, which have been forged in the city since the time of the Romans. Any other resemblance to Sheffield ends there because Toledo is an attractive and fascinating city with many important monuments to its historic past. 

Toledo looks pretty good from a distance - almost like an island city - it is located on a hill surrounded on three sides by a bend in the Tagus River.
