|Spectacular Spain - Toledo|
Monday morning we all got
on the bus and headed for
the old capital of Toledo. A short 1½ hours later we arrived in Toledo.
Our first visit was to the most famous Damascene Steel workshop in Toledo and a technical break. I was amazed at the assortment of knives and swords. The big feature was black steel with inlaid gold in a very intricate design. The swords were popular and one of our group purchased one for her husband.
The bus then took us to the highest point of the city so our walking tour of Toledo would be all downhill. All the way down to the Moorish bridge over the Tagus river. We visited the 13th-century Gothic Cathedral, the Jewish Synagogue, the Church of Santo Tome with El Greco's most famous painting, The Burial of Count Orgaz.
