This weekend we did a day trip to Toledo.
The old city is located on a mountaintop with a 150 degree view, surrounded on three sides by a bend in the Tagus River, and contains many historical sites, including the Alcázar, the cathedral (the primate church of Spain), and the Zocodover, a central market place.
They also make delicious marzipan. We couldn’t help but buying a lot!
Toledo has been a traditional sword-making, steel-working center since about 500 BC, and came to the attention of Rome when used by Hannibal in the Punic Wars. Soon, it became a standard source of weaponry for Roman Legions.
We loved the tiny streets in which you can get lost pretty fast!
In the afternoon we went down to the river, we saw a cactus and the flowers on some trees started blooming!
more pictures soon:-)
