About Toledo: The former capital of Spain is certainly one of the country's architectural treasures, with magnificent monuments specially from Moorish, Mudejar, Gothic, and Renaissance periods. Toledo was also the hometown of the great painter El Greco. The universidad of Castilla-La Mancha was officially founded on the 30th of June, 1982, with the merger of centres which corresponded to other university institutions and newly created centres. Although the foundation goes back to 1982, it was not until October 1985 that the UCLM came into full existence. Its establishment represented the Region's commitment to providing its own university system for more than a million and a half citizens who live in the territory. The University of Castilla-La Mancha is a regional institution divided into four campuses: Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, and Toledo, also extended to the cities of Almaden and Talavera de la Reina.
