About an hour south of Madrid, is Toledo.  This is an UNESCO World Heritage historical place due to co-existence of Christians, Jews and Muslims. We started our walking tour crossing the San Martin bridge.

We first came across the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes built in the 15th century.

We were visiting on a sunday morning, so we were not allowed in any of the churches or cathedrals that we came across. And we started our tour at 9am in the morning. So there was not much open until much later.

This is Toledo cathedral built in the 12th century and was so beautiful.

This area also housed the Town Hall.

We moved onto the Plaza Zocodover passing through the passages with home and tourist shops. Toledo is known for great tradition in the manufacturing of swords and knives. And we did see a lot of these in the shop windows. My husband wanted to get one. But with hand luggage only, it would never have been allowed on board.

This is the rest of Toledo, seen from the city walls. We took six escalators to get down from the medieval city. I had no idea how high up we actually were.

It was a lovely place to visit. I just wished that our tour had taken place when we could have gone into the buildings and explored a bit further. But there was nothing I could do about that. We may return, as there is lots of Spain that we would like to explore and we could always pop in here.
