A day in Toledo

A strong and rich city inside the clouds, Toledo is one of the most pretty towns in Europe. No wonder why El Greco chose to live and create there, as shown in his relevant painting.

A day around the narrow streets with some clouds running through the sky is a wonderful experience. A tourist can visit the breathtaking cathedral, the jewish synagoges and muslim mosques, characteristic of the cultural mix in the old times. Be careful of the knights!

In the restaurant opposite to the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, a wonderful example of peaceful and medieval architecture, you can try the delicious traditional plate "carcamusa".

And of course do not miss visiting the House-Museum of El Greco, containing his paintings of Christ and the 12 Apostols, and seeing his famous painting "El entierro del Conde de Orgaz" in the Church of Santo Tomé.
