I recently spent some time site seeing in the town of Toledo in
Castile-La Mancha, Spain. Situated to the south of Madrid, the
walled city is set on a hill above a river, which gives spectacular views
over the surrounding countryside.
Toledo is a Unesco world heritage site because of its many
monuments and its cultural history. There are many incredible
examples of buildings that have survived from medieval times.
It has what is believed to be one of Spain’s finest Gothic
Cathedral. The internal and exterior carving by the monumental
masons is spectacular and intricate.
We stayed in a small hotel just inside the town. Its hillside site
proved to be hard on the legs, but well worth the walk to the top to
appreciate the views. It is a very busy tourist attraction but I would
recommend it as an interesting place to visit.
The town draws a lot on the character of Don Quixote from the 1605
novel by Miguel de Cervantes, with statues and artwork depicting
him placed at various points around the town.
