Toledo Old Town

As I mentioned last week, I recently spent a week in Toledo, in Spain, a tiny medieval walled city 30 minutes by train from Madrid. The best way to see Toledo is on foot so good shoes are a must because the streets are cobbled and very hilly. And one of the nicest things to do here is to just walk around and get lost in the maze of twisty, narrow streets.

Toledo is known for its mix of Jewish, Christian and Muslim culture, which is reflected everywhere you look in the city. It wasn’t very busy in October so it was a great place to retreat to for some good food, rest and Autumn sunshine.

    Great photos, Cathryn, and I love the way you organized them so you start with the “big picture” of the city and then take us on a tour of the winding streets, before returning to look at the city from a distance and, finally, rest on that bench.

      Thanks Sarah! I’ve not shared a whole series of photos on here for a while so I’m glad you enjoyed them!
