Last Stop in Madrid Area: Toledo, Spain!

My last stop in the Madrid area was to the south of Aranjuez in Toledo. It is called “the ‘City of the Three Cultures’ having been influenced by a historical co-existence of Christians, Muslims and Jews” (according to my amazing research ability, aka wikipedia). The city is super old (no, I don’t know HOW old) and its coblestone streets and beautiful architecture really stand out.

We arrived around 3:00pm which worked out just fine as far as having enough time to see all the sites we needed to see. I was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t be long enough, but the city is walkable in a couple of hours.

Just a sneak peak of photos from deeper in this post…

The big spectacle (as I like to call it) in the Church. This is a beautiful place with tons of great views.
