Toledo | Spain Travel Diary, Day 1

TOLEDOPROMO TOLEDO1 TOLEDO5 TOLEDO7 TOLEDO8 TOLEDO6 TOLEDO4 TOLEDO9 TOLEDO11 TOLEDO3 TOLEDO2Hola! I’ve made it to Spain, and I’ve got to say that so far…it’s beautiful. Although jet lag is holding strong there have been very few still moments since we landed. Today we toured the centuries-old city of Toledo. While most travel blogs I read didn’t so much recommend this sweet little town, I beg to differ. Toledo was very charming and full of history. If you’re an art fan (especially one of El Greco) then this is a stop you’ve got to make.

The architectural influence of the Moors/Muslim’s could be seen from road to roof; my favorite was within the ornate, geometric decoration of the historic synagogue (once possibly planned to be a mosque). Many of the resident’s balconies were dotted with fresh flowers and greenery galore; I could probably have spent all day just meandering around the side streets, inhaling the aromas of cooking paella and stopping to admire the sharp, shiny souvenirs that are specific to Toledo.

My final answer on whether or not you should take the trip? Yes. Just take a couple of hours. I think you’ll be charmed, too.

 

Madrid post coming soon + heading to Segovia/Burgos tomorrow.
