On Saturday, we took a day long trip to Toledo, just southwest and a half-hour train ride from Madrid. We decided to take the scenic tour around Toledo, and it was beyond what I had expected. Toledo is truly a beautiful city. It rests on a hill surrounded by a river and large stone walls built throughout the centuries to keep out invaders.
The only way to access to Toledo is through about 4 bridges built around the city. In addition to that, the city is home to the Cathedral of Toledo, Greco, and derives its architecture from Muslim and Roman influences due to its location on the peninsula.
You could see the entire city from some key points throughout the area. We even took some time to walk around the entire city and explore some of the different regions of the ancient city. Overall, it was a wonderful trip with some great friends.
