‘Moon rises over Toledo’

Hereby my second picture of the rooftops of Toledo with the Alcázar dominating the old town.

The photo is taken a little before sunset from the same viewpoint as the picture of the cathedral and the rooftops that I’ve posted a while ago. That viewpoint was the roofterrace of my hotel.

At the highest point of the town there has been a fortification since Roman times but during the history of Toledo the fortress has been burned and bombarded very often.
Its last destruction was in 1936 and after the civil war it has been completely rebuilt.
