The perfect daytrip

Toledo is a small village in Castilla La Mancha, 71 kms away from Madrid (1 hour). Its historical centre has been admirably well preserved, so walking by its cobble paved streets you could feel yourself transported to 15-16th centuries...
It was home of the spanish Court till 1561, when Philip II translated it to Madrid.

Narrow streets

Most of the city center is filled with interesting buildings, old churches, museums, synagogues, houses of famous characters (El Greco, Cervantes...).
The city center is small, it can be walked around in less than 2 hours.

History all around

All around Toledo you can feel the history, imagine loads of stories inside every inner patio or hidden door...

    With those fast trains, I will think about staying overnight in Toledo instead of Madrid. Zocodover square seems like a perfect place for a quiet breakfast, coffee and peoplewatching. :o)
