Day 5: Toledo and back.

I had arranged a guided visit to Toledo through Spain Day Tours, the same outfit who had arranged our flamenco show & dinner yesterday evening. Sharon and Van, who will be on our upcoming cruise, joined us for the day. An uneventful drive down from Madrid, plenty of historical commentary along the way. We met our guide Ignacio who led us through the old city, with great attention to the intermixture of Moorish, Jewish, and Christian influences on the buildings and their decorations.

A fascinating city, I won’t attempt to capture its complexity here. It is worth a visit!

A few select images from the cathedral and other parts of the town…

[Update – Images not loading. I’ll try to add them later. Ah, the joys of a weak internet connection…]
