Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit, venturing into a new area of central Spain that I haven’t been to yet. While visiting Madrid, I took a quick daytrip to Toledo without doing any prior homework, and had the most wonderful surprise. Although the day started out foggy, with almost zero visibility, once I made my way up the escalators and to the old city, the clouds dispersed, the sun came out, and the city emerged in full glory. Toledo is beautiful, filled with rich history combining Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, with much of the history well preserved and fairly represented. Although the Muslims and the Jews have basically been eradicated from Toledo for over 500 years, the new agenda seems inclusive to highlight much of the complex history and the layers of time all across the city. It’s also very well located, as you’d expected from a former grand fortified city, surrounded by deep valleys and a long river, making every corner picturesque.

 

Below are some of my photowalk impressions of the town…
