Toledo - Spain

Toledo Cathedral

Toledo, just south of Madrid is one of Spain's most fascinating cities.  Sat on a small hill in the middle of the great plains of Castilla-La Mancha, Toledo was once the centre of Spanish learning and culture.  For centuries, Christians, Muslims and Jews lived here peacefully together, so many of the landmarks are a fusion of cultures.

The great cathedral, set amongst the narrow alleyways of the old city is stunning.  Intricate stonework lines each of the main doorways, carved with a pantheon of saints.  The castle is the other major attraction as well as the views over the river Tajo from the higher parts of the city.
